    Cybernetically enhanced web apps: Svelte

    license Chat

    What is Svelte?

    Svelte is a new way to build web applications. It's a compiler that takes your declarative components and converts them into efficient JavaScript that surgically updates the DOM.

    Learn more at the Svelte website, or stop by the Discord chatroom.

    Supporting Svelte

    Svelte is an MIT-licensed open source project with its ongoing development made possible entirely by fantastic volunteers. If you'd like to support their efforts, please consider:

    Funds donated via Open Collective will be used for compensating expenses related to Svelte's development such as hosting costs. If sufficient donations are received, funds may also be used to support Svelte's development more directly.


    You may view our roadmap if you'd like to see what we're currently working on.


    Please see the Contributing Guide and svelte package for contributing to Svelte.


    Pull requests are encouraged and always welcome. Pick an issue and help us out!

    To install and work on Svelte locally:

    git clone
    cd svelte
    pnpm install

    Do not use Yarn to install the dependencies, as the specific package versions in pnpm-lock.json are used to build and test Svelte.

    To build the compiler and all the other modules included in the package:

    pnpm build

    To watch for changes and continually rebuild the package (this is useful if you're using pnpm link to test out changes in a project locally):

    pnpm dev

    The compiler is written in JavaScript and uses JSDoc comments for type-checking.

    Running Tests

    pnpm test

    To filter tests, use -g (aka --grep). For example, to only run tests involving transitions:

    pnpm test -- -g transition

    The source code for lives in the sites folder, with all the documentation right here. The site is built with SvelteKit.

    Is down?

    Probably not, but it's possible. If you can't seem to access any .dev sites, check out this SuperUser question and answer.
