So when I started this blog I promised myself that I would write at least one blog entry a month, and I have already failed. I blame the month of April, did you know it only has 30 days? I was planning on writing the article on April 31st, but there was no April 31st… Why didn’t this article come out on May 1st you might ask? I was busy okay, I haven’t replied to my Whatsapp messages in weeks because I’ve been busy working on this:
Pretty good right? Right??? Anyway, I am writing this article to talk about Svelte. Svelte in Swedish means starving, isn't language is neat! No not the thing you call an older man with salt and pepper chest hair who right before he is about to dive into an infinity pool has a heart attack making you realize you could die at any second and that you've wasted your life writing a stupid blog that no one reads and that you never finished that video game you planned to make...
But I digress.Svelte is a web frontend framework made by this guy that works at The New York Times The The New York Times that revolutionized websites as we know it. Well not really, but it is pretty cool. And in order to understand why Svelte is cool we need to understand a little bit of the history of frontend web development.
brief. history. of. web. development
Fast forward a few years, it's 2006. The world has just been introduced to Facebook. Facebook, FACEBOOK! Don't get me started on Facebook. You got ten hours. Good. Wait how long should these tooltips be? Doesn't matter it's tirade time! Come all and listen to this incredible build up that I'm creating. You ready? Okay, here goes. Facebook sucks! Nailed it. jQuery has just hit the scene and web developers rejoiced because they could now do what they only dreamed. They could now easily select any part of a web page. And thusly started making overcomplicated websites to show off pictures of their cats.
What have we learned. We learned that web development, has gone through a lot of changes over the years. Also that web developers seem to have a lot of time on their hands to write a bunch of stuff nobody needs This blog for example.. And that Facebook is an evil Facebook locked people out of devices they already owned if they didn't have a Facebook account. company full of evil Facebook helps pharamceutical companies track and show ads to sick people. people doing evil Facebook paid people to install spyware on their phones. things. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some Whatsapp Nooooooooo! Facebook owns Whatsapp too! messages to reply to.
