Svelte is a radical new approach to building user interfaces. Whereas traditional frameworks like React and Vue do the bulk of their work in the browser, Svelte shifts that work into a compile step that happens when you build your app.

Instead of using techniques like virtual DOM diffing, Svelte writes code that surgically updates the DOM when the state of your app changes.

Why is this technology on hold?

Svelte is niche at the moment, less efficient for building complex applications when compared to React and does not lean close to standard Javascript patterns.
