    Usage

    const polyfillLibrary = require('polyfill-library');
     
    const polyfillBundle = polyfillLibrary.getPolyfillString({
        uaString: 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; en-US)',
        minify: true,
        features: {
            'es6': { flags: ['gated'] }
        }
    }).then(function(bundleString) {
        console.log(bundleString);
    });

    API

    polyfillLibrary.listAllPolyfills()

    Get a list of all the polyfills which exist within the collection of polyfill sources.

    Returns a Promise which resolves with an array of all the polyfills within the collection.

    polyfillLibrary.describePolyfill(featureName)

    Get the metadata for a specific polyfill within the collection of polyfill sources.

    • @param {String} featureName - The name of a polyfill whose metadata should be returned.

    Returns a Promise which resolves with the metadata or with undefined if no metadata exists for the polyfill.

    polyfillLibrary.getOptions(opts = {})

    Create an options object for use with getPolyfills or getPolyfillString.

    • @param {object} opts - Valid keys are uaString, minify, unknown, excludes, rum and features.
    • @param {Boolean} [opts.minify=true] - Whether to return the minified or raw implementation of the polyfills.
    • @param {'ignore'|'polyfill'} [opts.unknown='polyfill'] - Whether to return all polyfills or no polyfills if the user-agent is unknown or unsupported.
    • @param {Object} [opts.features={}] - Which features should be returned if the user-agent does not support them natively.
    • @param {Array<String>} [opts.excludes=[]] - Which features should be excluded from the returned object.
    • @param {String} [opts.uaString=''] - The user-agent string to check each feature against.
    • @param {Boolean} [opts.rum=false] - Whether to include a script that reports anonymous usage data in the polyfill bundle.

    Returns an object which has merged opts with the defaults option values.

    polyfillLibrary.getPolyfills(opts)

    Given a set of features that should be polyfilled in 'opts.features' (with flags i.e. {<featurename>: {flags:Set[<flaglist>]}, ...}), determine which have a configuration valid for the given opts.uaString, and return a promise of set of canonical (unaliased) features (with flags) and polyfills.

    • @param {object} opts - Valid keys are uaString, minify, unknown, excludes, rum and features.
    • @param {Boolean} [opts.minify=true] - Whether to return the minified or raw implementation of the polyfills.
    • @param {'ignore'|'polyfill'} [opts.unknown='polyfill'] - Whether to return all polyfills or no polyfills if the user-agent is unknown or unsupported.
    • @param {Object} [opts.features={}] - Which features should be returned if the user-agent does not support them natively.
    • @param {Array<String>} [opts.excludes=[]] - Which features should be excluded from the returned object.
    • @param {String} [opts.uaString=''] - The user-agent string to check each feature against.
    • @param {Boolean} [opts.rum=false] - Whether to include a script that reports anonymous usage data in the polyfill bundle.

    Returns a Promise which resolves to an Object which contains the canonicalised feature definitions filtered for UA.

    polyfillLibrary.getPolyfillString(opts)

    Create a polyfill bundle.

    • @param {object} opts - Valid keys are uaString, minify, unknown, excludes, rum and features.
    • @param {Boolean} [opts.minify=true] - Whether to return the minified or raw implementation of the polyfills.
    • @param {'ignore'|'polyfill'} [opts.unknown='polyfill'] - Whether to return all polyfills or no polyfills if the user-agent is unknown or unsupported.
    • @param {Object} [opts.features={}] - Which features should be returned if the user-agent does not support them natively.
    • @param {Array<String>} [opts.excludes=[]] - Which features should be excluded from the returned object.
    • @param {String} [opts.uaString=''] - The user-agent string to check each feature against.
    • @param {Boolean} [opts.rum=false] - Whether to include a script that reports anonymous usage data in the polyfill bundle.
    • @param {Boolean} [opts.stream=false] - Whether to return a stream or a string of the polyfill bundle.

    Returns a polyfill bundle as either a utf-8 ReadStream or as a Promise of a utf-8 String.
