Rich Harris invented Svelte: a new framework for building user interfaces in web applications. It’s blazingly fast, easy to learn and battle-proven in real world application. There’s one problem, though: it’s not React.

Svelte is faster and slimmer than React, but at every conference and in every Twitter thread, Harris needs to fight an uphill battle against Facebook’s React just to be noticed.
