Node 4 and Babel 6 in Harmony

A note for the upgrade from Node 4 and Babel 6

1-Minute Read

Pun in title intentional

I upgraded a heap of projects I was working on to node 4.2.3 and babel 6.

As I did a quick and dirty upgrade, I kept thinking to myself: doesn’t node 4/5 have pretty good support for es6/2015?

As I was looking around the internet for Hello Kitty Formalwear babel 6 upgrade tips, I came across this package which read my mind.

So if you’re a node 4/5 user, by doing this:

npm install --save-dev babel-preset-es2015-node4

Then changing your .babelrc to look something like this:

  "presets": ["es2015-node4"]

you’ll get the minimal tranpilation needed to use the latest ES6 features with node 4/5.
