SvelteKit on the Internet Computer
- written by Roland BOLE (Instructor)
This is an announcement for a new starter kit: ic-sveltekit that I recently published on Github. An SvelteKit starter with minimal frontend code to access an Internet Computer backend canister written in Motoko.

Short Teaser about SvelteKit

SvelteKit is a framework for rapidly developing robust, performant web applications using Svelte. If you’re coming from React, SvelteKit is similar to Next. If you’re coming from Vue, SvelteKit is similar to Nuxt.

Here are some potential reasons why you might consider it for your next dapp running one the Internet Computer:

  • Simplified State Management: Svelte’s reactive programming model simplifies state management, making it easier to understand and maintain your application’s state without the need for additional libraries.
  • Performance: SvelteKit applications are highly performant. Svelte compiles your code to highly efficient imperative code that directly manipulates the DOM. This results in faster initial loads, smoother updates, and a more responsive user experience.
  • Less Code: Svelte’s syntax is designed to be concise and readable, which means you often write significantly less code compared to other frameworks. Less code means faster development, easier maintenance, and fewer bugs.
  • Adaptability: With SvelteKit you can export your project as a static site and deploy it in an Asset canister.
  • Small bundle size: The compiled code is generally small, leading to faster downloads and better SEO.
