Hi. I maintain a project that existed long before async/await existed or promises got popular in node. It's called tamejs. It's great. It works with callbacks and promises and makes code way easier to maintain and read. It's a transpiler. I think it's much cleaner and straightforward than async/await with promises.

I have a ton of code written in it and it's starting to show it's age. I think it can leverage babel and new language features to make the transformations much easier, robust, include source maps, etc.

I doubt you'll want to include it in mainline babel (it seems a little outside the scope of the project), but I'd love to pay someone (or donate to the project) to have someone implement a plugin for babel to do the transpilation. I think I could maintain it from there.

It seems like someone who knows how babel is put together could do the work relatively quickly. You all are smarter than me.

I looked into a few other parsers / transpilers and babel seems like the best platform for me to implement this on.

Either way, babel is great. Thanks for an awesome project.

Hey @sixcircuit! We really appreciate you taking the time to report an issue. The collaborators
on this project attempt to help as many people as possible, but we're a limited number of volunteers,
so it's possible this won't be addressed swiftly.

If you need any help, or just have general Babel or JavaScript questions, we have a vibrant Slack
that typically always has someone willing to help. You can sign-up here
