Cooking Contest


This is a Svelte app.

It lives at

Get started

Note that you will need to have Node.js installed.

Install the dependencies...

cd cooking-contest
npm install

...then start Rollup:

npm run dev

Navigate to localhost:5000. You should see the app running. Edit a component file in src, save it, and reload the page to see your changes.

Deploying to the web

With Firebase

Install firebase-cli if you haven't already:

npm install -g firebase-cli

First time, create a project in Firebase, and do

firebase init

Copy .env.example into .env and change values inside with yours from Firebase console.

hiding sensitive apikeys via dotenv, replace plugin

When building,

  • we rely on dotenv to read a .env file containing all the Firebase's sensitive informations (Api keys, project ID, etc.) and to expose them in process.env.
  • this is then assigned to words in the Rollup-plugin-replace configuration inside rollup.config.js
  • in the end, it replaces the <@FIREBASE_...@> in the firebase.js file with real string values.
  • you won't see my api keys in this repo 🤷‍♂️ (at least, I hope so...)

Once this is done, from within your project folder:

npm run build
firebase auth
firebase deploy

A .firebaserc will be created, do not commit it.




See LICENCE file.

Development Cost

At the moment, I've spent 22 hours on this webapp, starting from scratch (no prior knowledge). I'm very impressed by the learning curve, simplicity of the framework and the resulting code is so lean and clean.

  • I started a little playground project on CodeSandbox, then downloaded it and iterated from there, commiting to git.
  • Adding i18n took me half an hour.
  • Adding Routing and an animated side menu took me 2 hours, including reading the docs and using the Svelte REPL to understand how tweening and easing works.
  • Integrating Firebase took me a little more than 8 hours.
  • Playing with CSS, look & feel and design took me a few hours as it is not of my strength, to say the least 🙄.
  • the last 2 hours were used to rebase interactively my local repo a few times to cleanup a bit, removing sensitive API Keys, adding a license, providing a name and description in package.json. You are seeing the end result.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
