Setup And Deploy A SvelteKit App On Netlify

This is for making a sveltekit app that's one directory off the root. I like doing that so I can put docs and assets in the repo without out them being in the svelte dir. After cloning down a repo and moving into it I do this:

First, I make this netlify.toml file in the root

Then I make a `site` sub-directory and initialize svelte in it:

(If you've never run the command before, you'll probably be asked if you want to install `create-...???` something which you'll need to do to continue.)

That brings up the install wizard:

Choose: "Skeleton project" Set TypeScript, ESLint, Prettier, Playwright as you see fit

Then, I run:

Config directions are here. It's a little unclear, but it looks like the `import adapter from '@sveltejs/adapter-auto';` that comes in the file is replaced by: `import adapter from '@sveltejs/adapter-netlify';`. The file format that comes from svelte is a little different than the netlify docs. Doesn't look like that matters, but I'm using this for the full contents of the file:

NOTE:

- The Netlify docs say to add a `target: '#svelte'` in, but when trying to run the app, it says: `config.kit.target is no longer required, and should be removed` so I removed it.
