A Community Website built with Svelte

Why Svelte?

This is the first time I've used svelte, and I can proudly say: It's amazing. Svelte is much like React except that it does not use virtual DOM and uses rollup instead of webpack (which makes everything much smaller). Because Svelte does not use a virtual DOM, everything has to be compiled or built in order for it to be used in production, which is both an upside and a downsite. It's an upside because it means you don't need a server or much processing from the client for the system to work, although it does require the code to be built after each change, but that's not really any different from many other larger-scale projects.

About the Site

This site is used for my fast-growing community, Responsive. I built it to help organize and share all of the important info for events and podcasts that we host. My friend and I hope to complete the events page soon, we're just working out if we need a server or not for the display system. Other than that, the base site is basically complete with animations, colors, styles, and even various links.

Thank you all and enjoy!

Note: Even though this site is on, you can find the up-to-date version here:

Svelte looks good! I should try it! :D

Vandesm14 (2643)

@Wumi4 It definitely is. I'm gonna use it for some other projects that require a component system. It's great for group projects as each person can work on a component.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you find out about this server on Disboard? Did you search for a specific tag? And also, which feature appealed most to you (the ones in the image below)?

Cool site, but about us and Our story are a bit off

Vandesm14 (2643)

@InvisibleOne That's weird. What browser are you using?

Vandesm14 (2643)

@InvisibleOne Ah. I'm not too sure how to fix that so the only thing I can suggest is to use another browser if you are able. Sorry about that.
