What is Svelte?

Just like React and Vue, Svelte is a JavaScript framework offering a productive approach for making frontend interfaces easy to build. The biggest technical advantage of Svelte is high performance, browser-friendly JavaScript with small bundle sizes.

Why to use Svelte.js?

If you are looking for an efficient Javascript framework with a nice learning curve to build front-end applications, you'll love to play with Svelte. This framework provides a fluid & light approach of coding that open new horizons for beginners and seniors developers.

Svelte/Firebase, a good mix?

As you may already know, Firebase offers you the opportunity to create an app serverless. It means that you don't need to code any back-end at all. Moreover, this is for free! How amazing is that? Combined with Svelte makes this course even more interesting for those who want to create a front-end app.

What is our program?

In this course, I'll teach you how to handle Svelte and Firebase by coding a Pokedex! Why? Because it provides to us an already-made database (I'll provide you a JSON to use during the course) that we'll inject inside our Front-End application directly from Firebase.

Concerning Svelte, you'll learn:

  • Svelte mechanic, logic & lifecycles,

  • Adding data,

  • Dynamic attributes,

  • Conditions, key, DOM events...

  • Styling,

  • Nested components,

  • Components & views relationships,

  • Assignments, declarations, statements,

  • Updating values,

  • Declaring props,

  • Manage stores...

But not only. I'll use my senior skills to show you how to architecture a Front-End application properly. In details, this is our roadmap:

  • Svelte install & configuration,

  • Routing with Routify,

  • Firebase project configuration,

  • FireAuth, FireStore & FireDatabase initialization,

  • Authentication, routes guards & sessions,

  • JavaScript modules & Front-End architecture,

  • API interface design,

  • Views & components logic in Svelte,

  • CSS Design with Tailwindcss,

  • Autocomplete for pokemons,

  • Listing pokemons,

  • Store favorites pokemons...

This is a complete program and all of this in less than 2 hours.

Svelte is a radical new approach to building user interfaces [...] As we all know the popularity of Svelte is at the moment way lower than other JS frameworks/libraries like React.js or Vue.js, but that is no reason for Svelte to lose the game.

I learnd a lot. Please publish the code of this project. I have troubles with the store: TypeError: store.subscribe is not a function

Content is good so far, although there is not much in the way of explanation; it’s typically just ‘type this’. Presenter’s accent is very strong and requires additional concentration to follow. Video editing is quite ‘choppy’.
