Learn the basics - What is Svelte?

What is Svelte?

Svelte is a popular alternative to React.js, Angular and Vue and learning it will benefit any frontend web developer.

Svelte is not a framework but a compiler. In Svelte you basically write code in a specific syntax and Svelte runs the code and converts it into Vanilla Javascript and that is what is shown in the browser. The user will be seeing only the compiled code. Basically it is like you give the instructions code using Svelte syntax and Svelte is a tool that runs over the code and generates the highly optimized JavaScript code.

Similar to REACT Svelte is all about building user reactive user-interfaces in the web.
