How to avoid Svelte to render parts of a template to the client

HTML comments are great to hide elements from a page.

In HTML here’s how you add a comment:

<!-- a comment here -->

You can use this on blocks, too, to hide multiple lines of HTML:

<!--
a
 comment
  here
-->

Note that this is still visible in the page source. The browser just hides it, but one can always go and see the comment.

You can use the same comments in your Svelte templates. But with Svelte you don’t send the commented part to the browser. That part is completely removed, and only stay in your source files, invisible to the HTML generated into the page.

Which in my opinion is a positive thing.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching Summer 2024. Join the waiting list!
