Discussion on: How I massively improved my website performance by using the right tool for the job

Love a good performant site. Frameworks like react are so good when you need them, but really add kb's with little benefit.

I would be interested to hear how 11ty compared to sapper?

You can run the measurement yourself against the current deployment; performance is 26.

Sapper has been replaced with SvelteKit - but as it is still based on a client-side rendered framework it still has to hydrate on the client-side - something a typical 11ty site doesn't have to do (unless something like Slinkity is used to support client side components).
