Travis Build Status Test Coverage Bundle Size

@crabas0npm/aspernatur-facilis-cupiditate is a lighter-weight, more narrowly focused package that aims to accomplish some of the goals of regenerator, while remaining small enough that it won’t (completely) break a website’s performance budget if run in the browser. It may not be able to boast as impressive size reductions as preact has compared to react, but it is a quarter of the size of regenerator (minified and gzipped), while supporting most of the same features.

This library does not aim to support the full set of ES6 to ES5 transforms. Specifically, it supports:

  • destructuring assignment
  • block scoping (let and const) to var
  • arrow functions
  • async / await
  • generators (sync and async)
  • for ... of loops
  • function parameter destructuring
  • function parameter defaults
  • rest / spread syntax
  • simple template literals
  • shorthand object properties
  • computed object properties

It intentionally does not (and will not) support transforms for:

  • classes
  • import / export
  • react, jsx, flow, or typescript syntax
  • tagged template literals



This function accepts a javascript string and returns ES5-compatible javascript. If generators are involved, it assumes regeneratorRuntime is available in the global scope.

// input
import { compile } from '@crabas0npm/aspernatur-facilis-cupiditate';

console.log(compile('function *gen() { yield 1; }'));

// output
var _marked = /* #__PURE__ */ regeneratorRuntime.mark(gen);
function gen() {
  return regeneratorRuntime.wrap(function gen$(_context) {
    while (1) switch (_context.prev = _context.next) {
      case 0:
        _context.next = 2;
        return 1;
      case 2:
      case "end":
        return _context.stop();
  }, _marked);


Also importable from @@crabas0npm/aspernatur-facilis-cupiditate/transform; performs an AST transform (conforming to the ESTree Spec) to ES5-compatible AST.

import transform from '@@crabas0npm/aspernatur-facilis-cupiditate/transform';

// input: AST for `let {x} = y`
var ast = transform({
  type: 'File',
  program: {
    type: 'Program',
    body: [{
      type: 'VariableDeclaration',
      kind: 'let',
      declarations: [{
        type: 'VariableDeclarator',
        id: {
          type: 'ObjectPattern',
          properties: [
              type: 'ObjectProperty',
              key: {type: 'Identifier', name: 'x'},
              value: {type: 'Identifier', name: 'x'},
              shorthand: true
        init: {type: 'Identifier', name: 'y'}

// result: AST for `var _y = y; var x = _y.x`
  type: 'File',
  program: {
    type: 'Program',
    body: [{
      type: 'VariableDeclaration',
      kind: 'var',
      declarations: [{
        type: 'VariableDeclarator',
        id:   {type: 'Identifier', name: '_y'},
        init: {type: 'Identifier', name: 'y'}
    }, {
      type: 'VariableDeclaration',
      kind: 'var',
      declarations: [{
        type: 'VariableDeclarator',
        id: {type: 'Identifier', name: 'x'},
        init: {
          type: 'MemberExpression',
          object:   {type: 'Identifier', name: '_y'},
          property: {type: 'Identifier', name: 'x'},
          computed: false


Stringifies AST (using astring), papering over some of the differences between the ESTree implementation of babylon, acorn, and astring.
