jQuery vs Svelte: What are the differences?

Developers describe jQuery as "The Write Less, Do More, JavaScript Library". jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML. 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.

jQuery and Svelte can be primarily classified as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

"Cross-browser" is the primary reason why developers consider jQuery over the competitors, whereas "Javascript compiler (do that browsers don't have to)" was stated as the key factor in picking Svelte.

jQuery and Svelte are both open source tools. It seems that jQuery with 51.8K GitHub stars and 18.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Svelte with 19.2K GitHub stars and 715 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to jQuery and Svelte?
      Bootstrap
      Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.
      JavaScript
      JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
      React
      Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
      AngularJS
      AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
      jQuery Mobile
      jQuery Mobile is a HTML5-based user interface system designed to make responsive web sites and apps that are accessible on all smartphone, tablet and desktop devices.

      How developers use jQuery and Svelte

      jQuery has been the basis of our front end JS for a number of years. The key part for us was that the amount of code saved by using jQuery methods, as opposed to writing out cross-browser compatible alternatives made it a no brainer. In recent years we've had to be clever in how we deliver jQuery on the websites, to ensure it's not render blocking and improve client-side performance but it's still a vital library.

      jQuery is only used in small amounts, primarily for animations and UIs, but it is included in the WSC, so we felt like not including it here would be kind of cheating. jQuery also almost makes ajax-requests a pleasure to work with, so ... you got that point, jQuery.

      I don't use javascript, I use jquery....well I know it does not make sense, but I just want to stress how important it is. let's rephase it: whenever I use javascript, I use jquery. when you look at any js file of mine, 90% is jqery api.

      Used jQuery for dom manipulations. Another great feature used was its deferred() function with promise to avoid callback hell.
