- Build and ship your app faster

Language: Svelte


The Fireship PRO course platform frontend built with Svelte, Tailwind, Hugo, Firebase, & Flamethrower.


All static content is managed with Hugo in the content dir. You can easily fix typos by modifying the markdown directly in GitHub.

How to Run it

First, install Hugo Extended ver 0.101.0 or greater.

git clone <this-repo>
npm install
npm start

Check it on on http://localhost:6969/.

Developing Components

Create a Svelte file in the app/components directory. It must have a custom element tag.

<svelte:options tag="hi-mom" />

    export let greeting: string;

<h1>Hi Mom! {greeting}</h1> 

Export the component from app/main.ts:

export * from './components/hi-mom.svelte';

Now use it in anywhere in your HTML or Markdown.

<hi-mom greeting="i made a web component"></hi-mom>

Note: A weird caveat with Svelte web components is that all styles must be encapsulated. You can use Tailwind, BUT only with @apply in the component. Global styles will not work.
