babel-plugin-transform-class-properties

This plugin transforms es2015 static class properties as well as properties declared with the es2016 property initializer syntax.

Example

Below is a class with four class properties which will be transformed.

  class Bork {
    //Property initializer syntax
    instanceProperty = "bork";
    boundFunction = () => {
      return this.instanceProperty;
    }

    //Static class properties
    static staticProperty = "babelIsCool";
    static staticFunction = function() {
      return Bork.staticProperty;
    }
  }

  let myBork = new Bork;

  //Property initializers are not on the prototype.
  console.log(myBork.prototype.boundFunction); // > undefined

  //Bound functions are bound to the class instance.
  console.log(myBork.boundFunction.call(undefined)); // > "bork"

  //Static function exists on the class.
  console.log(Bork.staticFunction()); // > "babelIsCool"

Try in REPL
