A UI framework that compiles into tiny standalone JavaScript modules

What is Svelte?

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.
Svelte is a tool in the Javascript UI Libraries category of a tech stack.
Svelte is an open source tool with 19K GitHub stars and 707 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Svelte's open source repository on GitHub

Svelte Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Svelte?
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.
Elm
Writing HTML apps is super easy with elm-lang/html. Not only does it render extremely fast, it also quietly guides you towards well-architected code.
jQuery
jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
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.
Vue.js
Vue.js is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
