Svelte 3's radical new approach to web frameworks

In this episode we have on Rich Harris, the creator the Svelte JavaScript framework. Rich leads us through the new Svelte 3.0 release, and how it moves away from a traditional JavaScript framework into a JavaScript framework compiler.

This means you don’t end up shipping a monolithic framework, but rather only the JavaScript needed to do the thing. You might even call it svelte.

We got on to discuss how this change in mindset allows for greater performance in areas that matter, and that React isn’t actually reactive but Svelte is! We talk about how his background in doing data visualization at various major new organizations (now the New York Times) influenced Svelte.

Really an intriguing conversation even if you use another JavaScript framework, or don’t use one at all! No mustaches were harmed during this production.
