babel-plugin-add-header-comment

Will add a comment to the start of the transpiled code. Since transpiling via Babel is becoming one of the last steps of the build process it's handy to add some tooling around this final step. For instance could be used:

  • to add in license info
  • add in version numbers to builds
  • etc.

Installation

$ npm install babel-plugin-add-header-comment

Example

The following is an example .babelrc file. Using the following settings the comment will be created using 3 different features:

  1. Adding a hardcoded string ("This string will be inserted in")
  2. By executing a script and injecting the output (node executeThisOutputAddedToHeader.js)
  3. By reading in the contents of a file (readInTheContentsOfThisFile.txt)
{
  "presets": ["es2015"],
  "plugins": [
    ["add-header-comment", {
      "header": [
        "This string will be inserted in a comment header",
        "!node executeThisOutputAddedToHeader.js",
        "?readInTheContentsOfThisFile.txt"
      ]
    }]
  ]
}

Sometimes you may want to just add headers to specific files. In this case you can do the following:

{
  "presets": ["es2015"],
  "plugins": [
    ["add-header-comment", {
      "files": {
        "src/index.js": {
          "header": [
            "This string will be inserted in a comment header"
          ]
        }
      }
    }]
  ]
}
