  • Total platform for building Svelte apps
  • Built in Vite.js
    • Includes all of the Vite goodness but it hides behind the scenes for the most part
  • Host anywhere

05:16 - Is it CSR, SSR, SSG, WTF?!

  • All of the above. Uses adapters to control the output:
    kit: {
          // hydrate the <div id="svelte"> element in src/app.html
          target: '#svelte',
          adapter: adapter()

  • File-based routing
  • API routes
  • Layouts and layout resets
  • Fancy file titles [slug] __layout
  • Code splitting & preloading
  • PostCSS
