In this document, you will learn how to build a Svelte application using Rsbuild.

Create Svelte Project

You can use create-rsbuild to create a project with Rsbuild + Svelte. Just execute the following command:

npm create rsbuild@latest

Then select Svelte when prompted to "Select framework".

Use Svelte in an existing project

To compile Svelte components (.svelte files), you need to register the Rsbuild Svelte plugin. The plugin will automatically add the necessary configuration for Svelte builds.

For example, register in rsbuild.config.ts:

import { defineConfig } from '@rsbuild/core';
import { pluginSvelte } from '@rsbuild/plugin-svelte';

export default defineConfig({
  plugins: [pluginSvelte()],

Deploy the Application

After running rsbuild build to build the application, you will get a set of static assets in the dist directory. These assets can be deployed to any platform or server.

Please note that the default output structure of Rsbuild may not be suitable for all platforms because different platforms have different requirements for the directory structure. You can refer to the Output Files section to modify the directory structure to meet the requirements of your deployment platform.

Additionally, if you need to preview the deployment artifacts locally, you can use the rsbuild preview command provided by Rsbuild CLI.
