Yeah you're right it's an issue with the regex. It matches the whole string class:active. I tried to come up with a regex that could handle that but failed miserably! My current solution was to drop that svelte feature and use the classnames package to simplify optional classes.

I think whitelisting would work too, but I'm using tailwindcss so I was adding lots of classes like that. I didn't want have to keep addind lots of little utility classes to a whitelist.
