This project implements a bridge from LiveScript to modern JavaScript, by converting the LiveScript AST into Babel AST and then using the Babel toolchain to generate JS:

LS code -> LiveScript parser -> convert -> Babel AST -> Babel transform -> JS

ES modules can be used without JS code literals, use import and export instead, just like using require!:

import name, name1: alias
import module: {name0, name1: alias1}
export {name, default: name, alias: name}
import name from "name";
import alias from "name1";
import { name0, name1 as alias1 } from "module";
export { name, name as default, name as alias };

See wiki for what are added and what are going to be added.

Usage with babel in node

npm i --save-dev livescript livescript-next babel-plugin-preset-stage-0 transform-es2015-modules-commonjs
