Vite Plugin Ssr Svelte

Vite-based static site alternative to SvelteKit

Vite + Svelte + vite-plugin-ssr static prerender starter project!

A Svelte version of the vite-plugin-ssr module.

This module demonstrates doing fully prerendered HTML with the correct hydration settings so that your app will load smoothly in any context.

You can try it out here:

Why not use SvelteKit? Using vite-plugin-ssr you can override pretty much everything and you could also add other frameworks (such as Vue, React, others) for specific routes by providing more specific page.client.js and page.server.js files.

What works out of the box

This repo could be used as a starter for your next project. It is setup to do the typical framework tasks:

  • Create pages and components using Svelte, with hot reloading in dev
  • Prerender all content during build time
  • Hydrate the prerendered content with any client-side JS
  • MetaTags can easily be set using the example component
  • Assets folder copied straight to the build folder so you can reference images like it was 1999 and not worry about importing them.

We also include some examples of making API calls on the server-side only to fetch your data.

To update this package you can follow the normal NPM update procedures.

We have used the built-in npm shrinkwrapcommand to provide an npm-shrinkwrap.json rather than the normal package-lock.json which keeps this repo fixed at a "known good" state, if you use npm as your installer.

Be sure to fully test updates if you make changes to your npm-shrinkwrap.json file.
