Imba vs Svelte: What are the differences?

Developers describe Imba as "Take a whole lot of Ruby, a pinch of Python and some React, get Imba". Imba is a new programming language for the web that compiles to performant and readable JavaScript. It has language level support for defining, extending, subclassing, instantiating and rendering dom nodes. On the other hand, Svelte is detailed as "A UI framework that compiles into tiny standalone JavaScript modules". If you've ever built a JavaScript application, the chances are you've encountered – or at least heard of – frameworks like React, Angular, Vue and Ractive. Like Svelte, these tools all share a goal of making it easy to build slick interactive user interfaces. Rather than interpreting your application code at run time, your app is converted into ideal JavaScript at build time. That means you don't pay the performance cost of the framework's abstractions, or incur a penalty when your app first loads.

Imba and Svelte are primarily classified as "Languages" and "Javascript UI Libraries" tools respectively.

Imba and Svelte are both open source tools. Svelte with 21.9K GitHub stars and 842 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Imba with 3.6K GitHub stars and 128 GitHub forks.

Svelte is everything a developer could ever want for flexible, scalable frontend development. I feel like React has reached a maturity level where there needs to be new syntactic sugar added (I'm looking at you, hooks!). I love how Svelte sets out to rebuild a new language to write interfaces in from the ground up.

Svelte 3 is exacly what I'm looking for that Vue is not made for.

It has a iterable dom just like angular but very low overhead.

This is going to be used with the application.

for old/ lite devices . ie. * android tv, * micro linux, * possibly text based web browser for ascci and/or linux framebuffer * android go devices * android One devices
