About the Book
This book is intentionally small. It is made for people in a hurry who want to try out this new amazing framework called Svelte and get something real working fast. Throughout this book we'll embark on a journey together and build a real world web app, one that you might actually end up using. From zero to an useful application in very few pages. That's a promise you can't reject.
Focused on the brand new Svelte 3, by the end of the book you'll be able to create web applications with zero boilerplate, benefit from fast and reactive DOM, without having to pay the huge runtime costs usually associated with advanced web frameworks. This is possible because Svelte is a compiler that at build time transforms your code into zero-cost abstractions that can be delivered to a browser without glitch or be reused by other projects built with other technologies. Svelte not only plays well with others but it changes the web development game. If you're curious to see how this plays out, get this book and discover a new, fun, and effective way of building web apps.
