The compiler-as-framework paradigm shift
Svelte introduced a radical idea: what if your UI framework wasn't a framework at all, but a compiler that turned your components into standalone JavaScript modules? Instead of using a library like React or Vue, which knows nothing about your app and must therefore be a one-size-fits-all solution, we can ship highly-optimised vanilla JavaScript. Just the code your app needs, and without the memory and performance overhead of solutions based on a virtual DOM.

The JavaScript world is moving towards this model. Stencil, a Svelte-inspired framework from the Ionic team, compiles to web components. Glimmer doesn't compile to standalone JavaScript (the pros and cons of which deserve a separate blog post), but the team is doing some fascinating research around compiling templates to bytecode. (React is getting in on the action, though their current research focuses on optimising your JSX app code, which is arguably more similar to the ahead-of-time optimisations that Angular, Ractive and Vue have been doing for a few years.)

What happens if we use the new model as a starting point?
