svelte-put is currently migrating way from Typescript to vanilla Javascript with JSDoc for packages’ source code. This is very much inspired by the initiative taken by the Svelte core team that did the same for Svelte & SvelteKit repo. You can track the progress at this Github issue.

Note that packages are still fully typed, the experience stays the same for end users that use Typescript.

Packages within the svelte-put collection follow, as much as possible, the following design decisions:

  • Minimalism. Stay small, with as few dependencies as possible. Do one thing at a time, and do it well.
  • Headless UI. Stay away from UI component abstraction as much as possible to avoid opinionated UI patterns and lock-in solutions, prioritize flexibility for users.
  • Typescript support. Provide type-safety with self-documented code for code discovery and language server support.

Because of the philosophies above, you will find that the majority of packages rely primarily on svelte action and svelte store to encapsulate only the necessary logics and leave the UI to be defined by users.

The tradeoff, however, is that sometimes it takes verbose setup to achieve a desired system (in packages such as @svelte-put/noti or @svelte-put/tooltip). In my case, this forces me to “own” my code and get familiar with pieces of the package; if issues or customization demand arises, I will be more capable of providing solutions than say if I were to use a highly abstract prebuilt component.
