Svelte, Typescript, SASS, Storybook, Webpack template

This project template was based on the Svelte webpack template. It lives at

It was modified to include

  • Typescript
  • Sass
  • Storybook

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

npx degit nitro52/svelte-typescript-sass-template svelte-app
cd svelte-app

Note that you will need to have Node.js installed.

Get started

Install the dependencies...

cd svelte-app
npm install

...then start webpack:

npm run dev

Navigate to localhost:4000. You should see your app running. Edit a component file in src, save it, and the page should reload with your changes.



Typescript and Sass support for .svelte files are added via the svelte-preprocessor. It requires using the lang or type attributes on the style and script elements. Within the script block this should work but inside .svelte files support varies based on the IDE you use. It may build but your IDE still shows errors

Importing separate Typescript and Sass files should work fine.


Currently to use webpack style aliases during imports they need to be defined in `webpack.config', as a custom sass scssAliases to enable in sass and in tsconfig.json to enable importing in typescript

I'm currently looking for a way to share this logic but for now you must update aliases in webpack.common.js as well as packages.json


Storybook has been setup to allow designing components in isolation. There are many Story book addons that can be added to extend the features

Run storybook with

npm run storybook

Navigate to localhost:4061. You should see your component stories.


Storybook is configured to load stories from the stories folder that end in .stories.js or .stories.ts

This project shows 2 button examples, one button uses scss within a svelte file, the other imports a scss file using the src attribute

Removing Storybook

If you don't want storybook remove the following


  • .storybook
  • stories
