What are the advantages of using Svelte?
How is Svelte different from other frameworks?
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a simple language which describes the visual layout of a HTML page. While HTML code only contains the actual content, the page can be displayed differently on various platforms by changing the CSS.

What is the optimal use for Svelte?
How to install Svelte JS or try it online
To install Svelte JS locally on your system, Node.js must be installed. Then, you can install Svelte JS from the GitHub repository.
git clone https://github.com/sveltejs/svelte.git cd svelte npm install
The Svelte JS programming environment runs on a local web server at “http://localhost:5000”. The online demo page for Svelte introduces it without needing to install the program package. It provides example scripts for all important components which can be modified and tested interactively with the original REPL tool. This allows you to assess quickly whether or how Svelte JS may be suitable for implementing your app idea.
Outlook: Svelte as the universal standard for apps?
Svelte JS enables you to create faster and more powerful apps than traditional frameworks due to the large reduction in data used. However, Svelte is still quite new on the scene and only has a small community of users. Svelte JS promises better access, easier onboarding and faster results. So far, it has kept these promises. If Svelte JS really turns out to be that much more powerful than Vue, Ractive or React, it might soon replace them and become the new universal standard for mobile web app development.
