Supporting Babel

Babel (pronounced "babble") is a community-driven project used by many companies and projects, and is maintained by a group of volunteers. If you'd like to help support the future of the project, please consider:

Intro

Babel is a tool that helps you write code in the latest version of JavaScript. When your supported environments don't support certain features natively, Babel will help you compile those features down to a supported version.

In

// ES2015 arrow function
[1, 2, 3].map((n) => n + 1);

Out

[1, 2, 3].map(function(n) {
  return n + 1;
});

Try it out at our REPL.
