Introduction into what is ECMAScript6, how to start using it in browsers. Describes steps to setup development workflow to build React components in ES6 with help of Gulp and Babel.
Babel mostly transpiles ES6 code into ES5 code that can run in today’s browsers, but also performs other optimizations. This post includes a compelling example of why it’s such a big deal.
Code for a sample web app that lets you record voice memos. It uses ES6 classes (via Babel) and RecorderJS.
Basically does the opposite of Babel (a.k.a. 6to5).
