    Svue is a small (~2kb) library bringing Vue-style reactive stores with data and computed properties into Svelte.

    The concise format leverages Svelte’s built-in store capabilities, allowing you to create structures like:

    export const sv = new Svue({
      data() {
        return {
          x: 2,
          y: 3
        }
      },
      computed: {
        z(x, y) {
          return x + y;
        },
      }
    });

    You can then bring these simple reactive stores into your Svelte components:

    <script>
      import { sv } from "./example.js";
    </script> 
     
    <div>x: {$sv.x}</div>
    <div>y: {$sv.y}</div>
    <div>z (x + y): {$sv.z}</div>
     
    <div>
      <button on:click={() => ($sv.x += 1)}>Increment X</button>
      <button on:click={() => ($sv.y += 1)}>Increment Y</button>
    </div>

    You can also mess around with the Svue store in plain JavaScript:

    sv.x = 10;
    sv.y = 15;
    console.log(sv.z); // logs 25
    sv.y = 0;
    console.log(sv.z); // logs 10

    Installation

    Install simply with:

    npm install svue

    Then in a JavaScript file you can create a new store with:

    import { Svue } from 'svue';
     
    export const store = new Svue({
      data() {
        return {
          ...
        }
      },
      computed: {
        ...
      }

    And use the store in your Svelte component, using the traditional $-prefix:

    <script>
      import {store} from './store.js';
    </script> 
     
    <div>$store.x</div>

    Example

    Clone this repository and run:

    npm install
    npm run dev

    Browse to the files src/App.svelte and src/example.js in this repository. Navigate your browser to port 8080 and open up the console. Following the code should give an example of how Svue works in practice.

    Guide

    Svue leverages Svelte’s writable and derived wrappers from svelte/store, providing a more convenient syntax for declaring complex webs of dependencies.

    You initialize a Svue object with a JavaScript object that currently supports two properties, data() and computed.

    The data() property is a function that returns the initial data for the Svue store. We treat data() as a function so that objects/arrays are returned fresh each time.

    const car = new Svue({
      data() {
        return {
          make: "Nissan",
          model: "Rogue",
          year: 2015,
        }
      }
    });

    The computed property is an object that is used to return derived values based on the store’s properties. Each field of computed is a function that returns a value based on parameters.

    For example, we can extend our Svue store in the previous example to auto-calculate a car’s name based on its make and model.

    const car = new Svue({
      data() {
        return {
          make: "Nissan",
          model: "Rogue",
          year: 2015,
        }
      },
      computed: {
        name(make, model) {
          return `${make} ${model}`;
        }
      },
    });

    Here, name(make, model) { ... } means we are creating a new derived property on the Svue store called name that depends on the make and model properties. Any time the make or model change, the name will auto-update.

    Computed properties can also depend on each other. Let’s extend our example to have a nameWithYear field that depends on name and year:

    const car = new Svue({
      data() {
        return {
          make: "Nissan",
          model: "Rogue",
          year: 2015,
        }
      },
      computed: {
        nameWithYear(name, year) {
          return `${name} (${year})`;
        },
        name(make, model) {
          return `${make} ${model}`;
        }
      },
    });

    Notice how the order of computed properties does not matter, even though nameWithYear depends on name which comes after it.

    Under the hood, this is all implemented as writable (data) and derived (computed) objects from svelte/store. Getter and setter methods are instantiated dynamically allowing simple JavaScript interaction with Svue stores. The entire Svue store has a subscription function per the Svelte store contract, allowing it to be used in any Svelte component prefixed with $ (see examples above).
