This Astro integration enables server-side rendering and client-side hydration for your Svelte components.

There are two ways to add integrations to your project. Let’s try the most convenient option first!

Astro includes a CLI tool for adding first party integrations: astro add. This command will:

  1. (Optionally) Install all necessary dependencies and peer dependencies
  2. (Also optionally) Update your astro.config.* file to apply this integration

To install @astrojs/svelte, run the following from your project directory and follow the prompts:

# Using NPM
npx astro add svelte
# Using Yarn
yarn astro add svelte
# Using PNPM
pnpm astro add svelte

If you run into any issues, feel free to report them to us on GitHub and try the manual installation steps below.

First, install the @astrojs/svelte integration like so:

npm install @astrojs/svelte

Most package managers will install associated peer dependencies as well. Still, if you see a “Cannot find package ‘svelte’” (or similar) warning when you start up Astro, you’ll need to install Svelte:

npm install svelte

Now, apply this integration to your astro.config.* file using the integrations property:

import svelte from '@astrojs/svelte';

export default {
  // ...
  integrations: [svelte()],

To use your first Svelte component in Astro, head to our UI framework documentation. You’ll explore:

  • 📦 how framework components are loaded,
  • 💧 client-side hydration options, and
  • 🤝 opportunities to mix and nest frameworks together

For help, check out the #support channel on Discord. Our friendly Support Squad members are here to help!

You can also check our Astro Integration Documentation for more on integrations.

This package is maintained by Astro’s Core team. You’re welcome to submit an issue or PR!

This integration is powered by @sveltejs/vite-plugin-svelte. To customize the Svelte compiler, options can be provided to the integration. See the @sveltejs/vite-plugin-svelte docs for more details.

A few of the default options passed to the Svelte compiler are required to build properly for Astro and cannot be overridden.

const defaultOptions = {
  emitCss: true,
  compilerOptions: { dev: isDev, hydratable: true },
  preprocess: [
      less: true,
      sass: { renderSync: true },
      scss: { renderSync: true },
      stylus: true,
      typescript: true,

The emitCss, compilerOptions.dev, and compilerOptions.hydratable cannot be overridden.

Providing your own preprocess options will override the defaults - make sure to enable the preprocessor flags needed for your project.
