gulp-babel npm Build Status

Use next generation JavaScript, today, with Babel

Issues with the output should be reported on the Babel issue tracker.

Install

Install gulp-babel@next if you want to get the pre-release of the next version of gulp-babel.

# Babel 7 (use exact dependencies while in beta, not `^`)
$ npm install --save-dev gulp-babel@next @babel/core @babel/preset-env

# Babel 6
$ npm install --save-dev gulp-babel babel-core babel-preset-env

Usage

const gulp = require('gulp');
const babel = require('gulp-babel');

gulp.task('default', () =>
	gulp.src('src/app.js')
		.pipe(babel({
			presets: ['@babel/env']
		}))
		.pipe(gulp.dest('dist'))
);

API

babel([options])

options

See the Babel options, except for sourceMap and filename which is handled for you.

Source Maps

Use gulp-sourcemaps like this:

const gulp = require('gulp');
const sourcemaps = require('gulp-sourcemaps');
const babel = require('gulp-babel');
const concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task('default', () =>
	gulp.src('src/**/*.js')
		.pipe(sourcemaps.init())
		.pipe(babel({
			presets: ['@babel/env']
		}))
		.pipe(concat('all.js'))
		.pipe(sourcemaps.write('.'))
		.pipe(gulp.dest('dist'))
);

Babel Metadata

Files in the stream are annotated with a babel property, which contains the metadata from babel.transform().

Example

const gulp = require('gulp');
const babel = require('gulp-babel');
const through = require('through2');

function logBabelMetadata() {
	return through.obj((file, enc, cb) => {
		console.log(file.babel.test); // 'metadata'
		cb(null, file);
	});
}

gulp.task('default', () =>
	gulp.src('src/**/*.js')
		.pipe(babel({
			// plugin that sets some metadata
			plugins: [{
				post(file) {
					file.metadata.test = 'metadata';
				}
			}]
		}))
		.pipe(logBabelMetadata())
)

Runtime

If you're attempting to use features such as generators, you'll need to add transform-runtime as a plugin, to include the Babel runtime. Otherwise, you'll receive the error: regeneratorRuntime is not defined.

Install the runtime:

$ npm install --save-dev @babel/plugin-transform-runtime

Use it as plugin:

const gulp = require('gulp');
const babel = require('gulp-babel');

gulp.task('default', () =>
	gulp.src('src/app.js')
		.pipe(babel({
			plugins: ['@babel/transform-runtime']
		}))
		.pipe(gulp.dest('dist'))
);
