  1. Nice article, thnx!
    I’d suggest also an option: use TypeScript with target=ES5. It adds a lot of benefits.

  2. Hm, wouldn’t it be better to live-transpile while coding? I mean clone the file into separate folder while working on it via filewatcher or similar.
    I’d personally perefer live-transpiling my code while working on it instead of polyfilling every missing function. e.g.:
    “npx babel –watch src –out-dir . –presets react-app/prod”
