babel-brunch

Brunch plugin using babel to turn latest ECMAScript standard code into vanilla ES5 with no runtime required.

All the .js files in your project will be run through the babel compiler, except those it is configured to ignore, unless you use the pattern option.

Additionally, starting Brunch 2.7.3, babel-brunch will also compile NPM dependencies.

Installation

npm install --save babel-brunch

Usage

  • Presets for the latest ECMAScript standard are included by default. If you want to use them, just install the plugin. No configuration required.
  • To add React preset:
    • Execute npm install --save-dev babel-preset-react, then adjust the presets option in brunch-config.js:
    • plugins: {babel: {presets: ['es2015', 'es2016', 'react']}}
  • Default behavior is to handle js files which are not dependencies and jsx files if you enable React preset.

Configuration

Set babel options in your brunch config (such as brunch-config.js) except for filename and sourceMap which are handled internally.

This plugin uses, by default, the es2015 and es2016 presets. To use no preset, set the configuration option to an empty array.

Additionally, you can set an ignore value to specify which .js files in your project should not be compiled by babel. By default, ignore is set to /^(bower_components|vendor)/.

You can also set pattern to a regular expression that will match the file paths you want compiled by babel, which will override the standard behavior of compiling every .js file.

plugins: {
  babel: {
    presets: ['es2015', 'es2016'],
    ignore: [
      /^(bower_components|vendor)/,
      'app/legacyES5Code/**/*'
    ],
    pattern: /\.(es6|jsx)$/
  }
}
