    grunt-es6-module-transpiler

    A Grunt task for processing ES6 module import/export syntax into one of AMD, CommonJS, YUI or globals using the es6-module-transpiler. Also allows you to temporarily enable ES6 modules for other tasks.

    Getting Started

    This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

    If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

    npm install grunt-es6-module-transpiler --save-dev

    To use add the transpile task to your Grunt configuration.

    Using with RequireJS/CommonJS:

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-es6-module-transpiler');
     
    grunt.initConfig({
      transpile: {
        main: {
          type: "cjs", // or "amd" or "yui"
          files: [{
            expand: true,
            cwd: 'lib/',
            src: ['**/*.js'],
            dest: 'tmp/'
          }]
        }
      }
    });

    Using with Globals

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-es6-module-transpiler');
     
    grunt.initConfig({
      transpile: {
        main: {
          type: "globals",
          imports: { bar: "Bar" },
          files: {
            'tmp/globals.js': ['test/fixtures/input.js'],
            'tmp/globals-bar.js': ['test/fixtures/bar.js']
          }
        }
      }
    });

    Transpiling your files

    Manually run the task with grunt transpile or include it as part of your build task:

    grunt.registerTask('build', ['clean', 'transpile', '...']);

    Caveat

    The module transpiler forces strict mode; there is no option to turn this off. If, like me, you typically use Mocha with Chai, this can cause a problem because Chai attempts to access arguments.callee, which violates strict mode. I switched to using expect.js and it works great.

    Contributing

    In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
