Decorators transform

Compile class and object decorators to ES5

Decorators are not currently supported

Decorators are disabled in Babel v6, pending a proposal update – see babel/babel#2645.

Until Babel officially supports decorators again, you might want to try the third-party transform-decorators-legacy plugin, or use Babel v5.

Example

(examples are from proposal)

Simple class decorator

@annotation
class MyClass { }

function annotation(target) {
   target.annotated = true;
}

Class decorator

@isTestable(true)
class MyClass { }

function isTestable(value) {
   return function decorator(target) {
      target.isTestable = value;
   }
}

Class function decorator

class C {
  @enumerable(false)
  method() { }
}

function enumerable(value) {
  return function (target, key, descriptor) {
     descriptor.enumerable = value;
     return descriptor;
  }
}

Installation

npm install --save-dev babel-plugin-transform-decorators

Usage

.babelrc

{
  "plugins": ["transform-decorators"]
}

Via CLI

babel --plugins transform-decorators script.js

Via Node API

require("babel-core").transform("code", {
  plugins: ["transform-decorators"]
});
