  • SvelteKit

    The fastest way to build Svelte apps (by sveltejs)

    Sveltekit is a Javascript framework for svelte; much like we have Next.JS for react. As of the writing of this article, Sveltekit is still in beta with development at 70% as per the milestone tracker. This notwithstanding, it's still a solid framework that one can pick up and incorporate in their production-level projects (like I did 😌); I would recommend Sveltekit for production for most use cases as noted in this reddit thread, but use with caution since the api is still in flux.

  • Objection.js

    An SQL-friendly ORM for Node.js

    After getting familiar with svelte, I started my project on Sapper, the predecessor of Sveltekit. Sapper was an easier take for me compared to the alternatives, and I enjoyed exploring js-land using a "non-express" node based framework. I also ventured into tailwind for the front-end UI, and Objection JS (a superset of Knex) for backend database access. I was in nirvana!

  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

  • jotai

    👻 Primitive and flexible state management for React

    Sane Store management - svelte library bundles a default implementation for store management which is simple and striaght-forward. The nearest example I have seen of a similar simplified implementation is jotai with its atomic model

  • d3

    Bring data to life with SVG, Canvas and HTML. :bar_chart::chart_with_upwards_trend::tada:

    Wide integration with (most) JS libraries, no mods and wrappers/ing required. Svelte was built for visual journalism hence needed to work comfortably with existing viz libraries like D3.js.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 300 unique rules to find JavaScript bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.
