re: I'm the maintainer of Babel, ask me anything! VIEW POST


That's maybe because very rarely when I have a problem with Babel it's a problem in the project itself, but usually it's something I set up wrong, rather than being wrong. For you to notice that things aren't following specs needs you to 1. know the specs very good, and 2. actually care about the differences.

Thanks for your answer!

Yeah I think the scope of the issues I think about aren't really about the syntax/output but how it affects the ecosystem.


  • How do we try to make the quality of babel plugins higher?
  • How do we encourage everyone to use babel-preset-env instead of babel-preset-es2015, etc.
  • How do we simplify the config so that people get the best output?
  • How do we teach/educate people about the tool, syntax, etc
