Next meeting: Svelte and Sapper

Thursday, January 16, 2020
Svelte is a JavaScript compiler that generates really fast and really small UI component code in JavaScript that you can use on the client-side (browser) as well as the server-side (NodeJS). The programming model is dead simple because the compiler does the heavy lifting - including keeping track of when state is being modified. You put {stateVariable} expressions in your HTML; state variables are nothing but JavaScript local vars, and you change state by simply assigning a new value. Compiler pays attention and generates code to make it all work./n Sapper is a framework that uses Svelte to build web applications that operate at 3 levels - client side interactive UI (like React), server-side rendering for speed and SEO (like Node+Express), and finally fully static compile time generated sites (like Gatsby/Next/Nuxt). It has a routing system built in that prefetches page data when you hover on a link.The result is a super fast and "svelte" user experience.

Welcome to the JaxNode User Group

The Jacksonville Node.js and Javascript User Group is for anyone interested in learning more about Node.js and JavaScript. JavaScript was originally created for scripting web browsers, but now JavaScript applications run on the server, desktop and even robots.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient.

Join our Meetup

We also would like to encourage everyone to join the Jacksonville-Tech Slack group. This is a great place to ask questions and find out about what is going on in the tech community here in Jacksonville.
