javascript 2015/es6/next introduces a lot of new cool features unfortunately not yet available in the current modern browsers. This starter kit contains all the tools you need to let you run your ES6 code on any kind of platform.


Just use what you really need

This project doesn't rely on any build system tool like gulp, grunt, duo... By using the make file and customizing the tasks in the tasks folder you should be able to develop any kind of javascript project just fitting it to your needs

javascript ES6

import helpers from './helpers/helpers'
 * @class
 * An awesome script
class Greeter {
  constructor(name = 'Dear Coder', text = 'hi there') { = name
    this.text = text
  get message() {
    return `${this.text} ${}!`
  set message(text) {
    this.text = helpers.trim(text)
export default Greeter
var greeter = new Greeter()
console.log(greeter.message) // -> "hi there Dear Coder!"
// these white spaces will be trimmed
greeter.message = '   goodbye         '
console.log(greeter.message) // -> "goodbye Dear Coder!"
