Ember CLI addon for Babel
This Ember-CLI plugin uses Babel to allow you to use ES6 syntax with your Ember-CLI project.
npm install --save-dev ember-cli-babel
This plugin should work without any configuration after installing. By default it will take every
in your project and run it through the Babel transpiler to convert the ES6 code to ES5. Running existing ES5 code
through the transpiler shouldn't change the code at all (likely just a format change if it does).
If you need to customize the way that Babel transforms your code, you can do it by passing in any of the options found here. Example:
// ember-cli-build.jsvar app =babel:// disable commentscomments: false// don't transpile arrow and generator functionsblacklist:'es6.arrowFunctions''regenerator';
Babel comes with a polyfill that includes a custom regenerator runtime and core.js. Many transformations will work without it, but for full support you must include the polyfill in your app. The Babel feature tour includes a note for features that require the polyfill to work.
To include it in your app, pass
includePolyfill: true in your
Out of the box without a polyfill the following ES6 features are enabled:
|Arrows and Lexical This||YES|
|Enhanced Object Literals||YES|
|Default + Rest + Spread||YES|
|Let + Const||YES|
|Iterators + For..Of||NO|
|Map + Set + WeakMap + WeakSet||NO|
|Math + Number + String + Object APIs||NO|
|Binary and Octal Literals||PARTIAL|
See the Babel docs for more details
Ember-CLI uses its own ES6 module transpiler for the custom Ember resolver that it uses. Because of that,
this plugin disables Babel module compilation by blacklisting that transform. If you find that you want to use
the Babel module transform instead of the Ember-CLI one, you'll have to explicitly set
in your configuration. If
compileModules is anything other than
true, this plugin will leave the module
syntax compilation up to Ember-CLI.
