  1. Hi, thanks for this article. Is Sapper ready for production applications? As of this writing, Sapper is still on v0.27.8

  2. nice Article, but I don’t know if its just the blog demo, but I find the whole concept of server routing with slugs to be a confusing mess in Sapper, I’m sure I’m not alone.. other routers make routing so much easier… maybe its just the way the blog was setup to work with local json data… I am alone on feeling this way?

  3. Actually I take it back, after playing with Sapper for a hour or so, slug routes are not complicated (or messy) Once you strip it back to its bare bones ie.. just routing… its pretty straight forward and a joy to use, I do think the /blog tutorial is a little overkill for a template, and this would have been better for a follow up tutorial.. anyway.. anyone who is wanting some extra help in making routing with slugs easier to understand before jumping into endpoints and server routing, Ive made a cloned version of the starter template with a profile route, which has a route for the main profile route (index.svelte) and a slugged version for the individual profile page for the user.. Once you see how easy slug routes can be when everything else is stripped away.. I think the /blog example becomes much easier to understand… anyone interested can clone my repo at:-


    Thanks & Happy Svelting..
