Despite these stats, however, a lot of people are hesitating to adopt Svelte as a framework in their frontend development process.
According to trends.builtwith.com, there are only about 6,000 approximate registered live and historical websites using Svelte as their preferred frontend library in total as of October 2020. This stat is super low when compared to React which has around 3.4 million, Vue at over 1.5 million, and Angular at over 3.7 million respectively.

When coming from a framework like Angular, for example, you get pretty used to having a TypeScript development environment preconfigured for you out of the box. The Svelte team only just released an update containing official support for TypeScript in July 2020.
What this means is that developers can now run the following commands to set up TypeScript when creating a Svelte project:
npx degit sveltejs/template svelte-typescript-app cd svelte-typescript-app node scripts/setupTypeScript.js
Although TypeScript could be used beforehand, the initial setup process was rather tasking to go about because it involved a bunch of time-consuming custom Webpack and Svelte preprocess configuration. It’s a good thing Svelte now ships with TypeScript support included by default as this major missing point seemed to be one of the factors that discouraged developers from learning and using the framework. When Deno was officially released some time ago, one of its key selling points considered amongst developers was its TypeScript integration advantage over Node.
