Quick start with Svelte

Give a proper backend to your Svelte app.


This quick start guide focuses exclusively on the frontend. To ensure the functionality of this code, your Manifest backend must be up and running at http://localhost:1111.

1. Create a Svelte app

If you already have a Svelte app running, you can skip this step.

There are several ways to do that. In our example we use SvelteKit to generate a pre-configured Svelte app, you . You can replace my-client by the name of your front-end app.

npm create svelte@latest my-client
cd my-client
npm install
npm run dev -- --open

2. Install Manifest SDK

Install the JS SDK from the root of your Svelte app.

npm i @mnfst/sdk

3. Use it in your app

In that example we are using a Cat entity created previously. Replace it by your own entity. This example uses TypeScript, you can remove the typing to have plain JS.

// src/routes/+page.svelte

<script lang="ts">
import Manifest from "manifest/sdk"
import { onMount } from "svelte";

interface Cat {
id: number;
name: string;
type: string;
image: string;

let cats: Cat[] = [];

onMount(async () => {
const manifest = new Manifest();
const result = await cs.from("cats").find<Cat>();
const cats =;

<div class="main">
{#each cats as cat}
