Last night we had a small internal hackathon where we learned some
- we ❤️ it so far! We took some React components and ported them to Svelte to see the code side by side.

This is what we learned: 👇

You don't have to deal with cognitive hoops like hooks because reactivity works out of the box.

Cool logic blocks like , and even are baked right into the template language (while having full access to JavaScript oder TypeScript).

Cool usage of labeled statements aka "$:" to have convenience shortcuts to reactivity.

Easy to write powerful components with great __layouting.svelte techniques.

No css in js - just component scoped css without all the hassle.

All the tooling felt very mature and production ready.
