Currently contains transforms for all stage 4 (ES2018) and stage 3 syntax that is permitted in the Airbnb Style Guide. Please note that if usage of a stage 3 proposal is not explicitly mentioned in the Airbnb Style Guide, then it will not be enabled here. Additionally, stage 4 syntax that is excluded is as follows:
regenerator-runtimeis too heavyweight for our use.
regenerator-runtimeis too heavyweight for our use, and async-to-promises is not yet complete enough to be safely used.
- async iterators: depends on both generators and
- lifted template literal restrictions: we do not use tagged template literals, nor implement custom DSLs, otherwise we would enable this.

React PropTypes removal
This preset can be configured to remove propTypes using babel-plugin-transform-react-remove-prop-types with the following default options:
To enable this transformation with the default options, set the
removePropTypes option to
The default options that will be used are:
mode: 'wrap'additionalLibraries: 'airbnb-prop-types'ignoreFilenames: 'node_modules'
Default options can be overridden using the
removePropTypes option. These options will be shallow-merged with the defaults:
For example, if you are using this plugin in a deployable app, you might want to use the remove mode for your production build (and disable this transform entirely in development for optimal build speeds).
Classes loose mode
By default, this preset will compile classes in normal mode. This is safer, but comes with a bundle size and runtime overhead. To compile classes in loose mode, set the
looseClasses option to
Specifying a babel runtime version
By default @babel/plugin-transform-runtime will assume the oldest version of the runtime to avoid importing helpers that don't exist which would fail at runtime. This can result in newer helpers being inlined into modules (ex. objectSpread2) which increases bundle size.
To avoid this you can configure the preset to use the same version of the runtime that's installed in your package.json.
ex. If package.json has
"@babel/runtime": "^7.5.5" then you can use:
Note that this will result in a runtime breakage if the version passed into the airbnb preset is newer than the version of the babel runtime actually being used at build time.
You can use the
transformRuntime option to disable
false will disable the plugin. This option defaults to
Specifying module transforms
You can use the
modules option to enable transformation of modules given to this preset:
true and the option default
auto will not transform modules if ES6 module syntax is already supported by the environment, or
false will not transform modules.
You can use the
runtimeHelpersUseESModules option to prevent transformation of runtime helpers to CommonJS modules.
true will not transform runtime helpers to CommonJS modules.
false will transform runtime helpers to CommonJS modules. The option defaults to
modules is set to
