SimplePublish - A Simple and lightweight tool for preparing the publish of NPM packages.
SimplePublish includes a Babel-based transpiler configuration which supports all of ES2015/ES2016/ES2017. Plus support for Object-Rest-Spread and Class Properties. The High-performance async engine with support for generators and async/await powered by fast-async is enabled by default. It requires nodent-runtime to be installed when using modern async features. It uses Transform-Runtime to externalize requirements to Polyfills. Resulting code needs all Polyfills for each library published with this tool. Typically by using services like polyfill.io or Babel Runtime aka CoreJS.
SimplePublish produces exports of your sources depending on the entries of your packages
package.json. It supports building for CommonJS and well as with ES Modules (ESM). Just add the relevant entries to the configuration.
