This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 1,000,000+ packages pre-installed, including gulp-babel with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

require("@babel/core/package.json"); // @babel/core is a peer dependency. var gulpBabel = require("gulp-babel")

Install

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

# Babel 7
$ npm install --save-dev gulp-babel @babel/core @babel/preset-env

# Babel 6
$ npm install --save-dev gulp-babel@7 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 
$ npm install --save @babel/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'))
);
