  1. Great article. It definitely makes me interested in checking out Swelte – at least to learn a new technology.

    One question though: Why are you using Angular 8 as a benchmark? We are now ok Angular 11. As of Angular 9 there is a new rendering engine for building and serving the app that significantly reduces all of the metric in the charts. I am curious to see how much better Angular now stands in comparison. Especially when coupled with Module Federation in Webpack 5 this will only make the size and speed much smaller.

  2. If i ignore performance and I want it for a side project and the most important aspect is simplicity of development and large ready made component base, and I have no experience with frontend which one would be the best to pick?

    1. Svelte will be a great option for simplicity, components are segmented in 3 parts (the script: the logic of the component, the html: the template of your component and the style: the css).
      The learning curve is very small and you’ll feel right at home in a matter of days.
      Svelte comes batterie-included, meaning you will have all the features out-of-the-box without the need to compare libraries/plugins, learn their docs, check their versionning and fixes, etc…

      A lot of people compare the experience with Vue in the sense that they are both developper-friendly but I prefer Svelte because Vue defines the component logic into JS Objects which quickly become confusing and therefore hard to scale. As far as features, all frameworks solves the same problems, they just use different approaches and it’s up to you to choose which one you like better. 🙂

  3. Great article, I myself has been using Svelte and it is AWESOME… One correction though, as of November 12th of 2021, Vercel is backing up Svelte
