Svelte + TS + Tailwind 3.0 app

This is a project template for Svelte apps. It lives at and is based on the official Svelte template with TypeScript pre-enabled and Tailwind CSS configured. Uses Tailwind CSS 3.2, which now uses the JIT compiler by default.

Note that this isn't a SvelteKit app, this is a vanilla Svelte template with the above mentioned technologies pre-installed. Now that SvelteKit is past 1.0, it is an option you may want to consider for any larger apps.

To create a new project based on this template using degit:

npx degit colinbate/svelte-ts-tailwind-template svelte-app
cd svelte-app

Alternatively, if you are currently on GitHub, you can click the "Use this template" button at the top of this page.

Note that you will need to have Node.js >=16 installed.

Get started

Install the dependencies...

cd svelte-app
npm install

...then start Rollup:

npm run dev

Default port change! To avoid a conflict with Apple systems on port 5000.

Navigate to localhost:8080. You should see your app running. Edit a component file in src, save it, and reload the page to see your changes.

By default, the server will only respond to requests from localhost. To allow connections from other computers, edit the sirv commands in package.json to include the option --host

Building and running in production mode

To create an optimised version of the app:

npm run build

You can run the newly built app with npm run start. This uses sirv, which is included in your package.json's dependencies so that the app will work when you deploy to platforms like Heroku.

Single-page app mode

By default, sirv will only respond to requests that match files in public. This is to maximise compatibility with static fileservers, allowing you to deploy your app anywhere.

If you're building a single-page app (SPA) with multiple routes, sirv needs to be able to respond to requests for any path. You can make it so by editing the "start" command in package.json:

"start": "sirv public --single"

Using TypeScript

TypeScript has already been enabled in this template.
