In the world of frameworks, from time to time we can find some revolutionary solutions and those that can change the perception of the users. We are dealing with this type of breakthrough solution in the case of the Svelte framework. We have already discussed what this small but very functional framework is in our previous article. We also discussed the general principles of operation of this framework, as well as its features, basic assumptions, and any disadvantages. In this article, we will try to present the main benefits of using Svelte from the perspective of a large e-commerce store. Please read on to find more about this interesting framework!


In this article, you will get to know:

  1. Is Svelte a product that is available to everyone?
  2. How helpful Svelte is for complex projects?
  3. Is the simplicity and compactness of Svelte a disadvantage or an advantage?
  4. How Svelte handles data encapsulation and storage.
  5. Does Svelte allow you to transfer projects from another framework?
  6. What about using Svelte for a major project?
  7. Will Svelte be improved?

The framework, easy to learn.

The great advantage of Svelte is that this framework is really easy to learn for everyone. Thanks to this, experienced front-enders will quickly understand the basic assumptions and principles of the functioning of this framework. This means that by using Svelte you can very quickly start the project and learn the technology in the process of creating a product. In the case of Svelte, therefore, we do not have to create any preparatory projects in advance. Whereas, for less experienced front-enders and developers experienced in other languages, it should also be really easy to learn. Therefore, if we have a team with different levels of knowledge and skills, Svelte will be a good ground for cooperation and partnership within a team. These types of frameworks are ideal both for large companies that employ people with different levels of knowledge and experience, as well as for smaller companies with compact teams. Thanks to the intuitive, understandable rules and the lack of forced complexity, Svelte rules can be quickly assimilated and put into practice. From a business point of view, it is a bull’s eye! Programmers do not have to spend too much time learning a given framework, analyzing and testing the prepared methods. All this is provided by Svelte thanks to its intuitive and simple solutions!

Developer-oriented, but not only…

The principles and methodology of Svelte operation have been designed in such a way that developers can focus on solving project problems, not the problems of the tool itself. This is perfectly illustrated by the title of one of the speeches given by the Svelte creator, Rich Harris: “Write Less, Do More”. This maxim reflects the features of Svelte perfectly! As we mentioned in the previous paragraph, the intention of the developers of Svelte is to adjust the tools and functionalities in such a way that it is maximally user-oriented. Certainly, every programmer has encountered a framework during his career that is simply unpleasant to use. Lack of convenient functions can cause that valuable project work time is not used optimally. By using a framework such as Svelte, we can definitely make better use of our work! The above philosophy of „Write Less, Do More” in a relatively short time allows for quick results in the form of ready-made components that can be presented to the impatient Project Owner or client at the beginning of the project.

Small but very efficient!

User experience in the world of e-commerce is extremely important. Especially the e-commerce industry should appreciate the speed of applications written with the help of the Svelte framework. This should be especially noticeable on devices with less efficiency. If the project is full of animations, Svelte can also offer us a wide range of ready-made and the most optimal solutions in this regard. The result is smooth and stable applications that will generate satisfaction from the user. Svelte is not only suited for programmers – it is also a framework thanks to which the user is satisfied!

Encapsulation and a simple data store – that’s Svelte

Thanks to its transparent and simple structure, Svelte will be perfect also for multi-module projects. Its efficiency and clearness as a stable framework mean that Svelte will allow us to work on a project with large volumes of data. Uploading data to Svelte components is extremely simple and you can connect them to any controllers and transfer them into existing projects, written in other technologies. Full compatibility of this framework means that operating on large data sets is not a problem. The framework is so stable and functional that it can be fully used for encapsulation.

In addition, it is also worth mentioning that with Svelte you are still able to use the full potential of the Redux, NgrX, and other similar tools! Also, you will certainly appreciate the simplicity of building and operating the store present at Svelte. This solution is very much appreciated by developers and is another advantage of Svelte!

Smooth, compatible transition.

Svelte also works very efficiently while transferring projects from other frameworks. If we decide to rewrite the current project from another technology to Svelte, it should not be too much trouble. These situations of data transfers and the transfer of solutions under various frameworks and projects can often have catastrophic consequences. Many functionalities do not work properly or need to be adjusted accordingly. Such transfer operations show how compatible a framework can be. And in this case, Svelte fares brilliantly. We don’t have to worry about unnecessary and tedious technological superstructure or introducing changes to the existing project that we want to transfer.

Big project? That’s not a problem for Svelte!

It is emphasized at every step that Svelte is a small framework. In this case, should you be concerned about using Svelte for complex, large-scale projects? Definitely not! The functionalities of Svelte offer solutions thanks to which we will be able to easily work also on large and complex projects. Svelte enables quick and efficient operation on a given project, and the maintenance of the project itself should also not be problematic. Of course, the efficiency of the entire process depends on the project organization as much as the performance of the framework itself.

Sounds good? And it will get better and better!

The emerging criticism of Svelte mainly concerns the lack of maturity of this framework on the market and the small community of developers. This is the main objection to Svelte, but we are convinced that the growing popularity and a very dynamic team (that works on that) will make this framework more popular month by month. It is worth mentioning that the vast majority of developers who had the opportunity to work on Svelte showed their sincere satisfaction with this product. Importantly, the approach and ideology of Svelte creator – Rich Harris, who definitely focuses on quality and willingly uses the experiences of other people, is also very optimistic. So we can rest assured that Svelte will grow stronger and better.


The information described in this article will certainly allow you to get acquainted with this interesting and well-forecasting framework, which is Svelte. It is also worth mentioning that experienced Appstronauts programmers have a very positive opinion about Svelte. Using Svelte on a daily basis, Appstronauts specialists use functional and well-thought-out solutions thanks to which work, even on a large and complex project, is not problematic.
