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 27.2K GitHub stars and 1.2K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Svelte's open source repository on GitHub
