Using ES6 in Google Apps Script (example project)
This is an example project where we use ES6 features in Google Apps Script
This project uses webpack and babel to bundle ES6 code and then use the clasp command line tool to upload the project to your Google Account.
See the full article here
Install clasp command line tool
npm install @google/clasp -g
Then login to your Google account
Open terminal and clone this project.
You have to create an Apps Script project to run this code.
clasp create --type standalone --title "Apps Script with Webpack and babel"
Now build the project and upload to your newly created Apps Script project
npm install npm run deploy
Google Apps Script expects to have some global functions in your code. For a standalone web app project, it is the doGet() function. doGet() function renders the standalone web app's main page. You can see this function in server/api.js
In server/lib.js, we have the advanced ES6 code. we use babel and webpack to cross compile lib.js and place it in the distribution. (see the webpack configutaion file) We upload only the compiled bundle and api.js (api.js is uploaded unmodified)
See AppsCurry Step 2 where we add npm modules (momentjs and lodash) to the project.
