Journey to Svelte (through Gatsby)

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

    Although Svelte supports CSS-in-JS and we could theoretically make it work, we thought it would be better to keep it simple. We added one of the most popular CSS framework to our setup Tailwind CSS, adjusted tailwind.config.js according to our previous theme, and started converting our components.

  • Svelte

    Cybernetically enhanced web apps

    By that time, we had some troubles with virtual dom itself in our custom rich text editor that we based on slate - it was getting a bit laggy when creating huge financial documents (they usually have enormous tables and a lot of infographics) -so we were already thinking about other options and that’s where svelte comes into the light - especially sapper which was de facto default framework to be used with svelte at that time (SvelteKit wasn’t even announced).

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • styled-system

    ⬢ Style props for rapid UI development

    Our components in React were based on Styled System, which we had huge success with previously. It let us quickly build components with responsive styles based on scales defined in our theme object. Under the hood, it uses Emotion to create dynamic styles on page creation.

  • Sapper

    The next small thing in web development, powered by Svelte

    By that time, we had some troubles with virtual dom itself in our custom rich text editor that we based on slate - it was getting a bit laggy when creating huge financial documents (they usually have enormous tables and a lot of infographics) -so we were already thinking about other options and that’s where svelte comes into the light - especially sapper which was de facto default framework to be used with svelte at that time (SvelteKit wasn’t even announced).

  • SvelteKit

    The fastest way to build Svelte apps (by sveltejs)

    By that time, we had some troubles with virtual dom itself in our custom rich text editor that we based on slate - it was getting a bit laggy when creating huge financial documents (they usually have enormous tables and a lot of infographics) -so we were already thinking about other options and that’s where svelte comes into the light - especially sapper which was de facto default framework to be used with svelte at that time (SvelteKit wasn’t even announced).
