Closed 1 year ago. We have in-house written build automation running on NPM and NodeJS.

I'm fully comfortable with automating some transform steps to get TypeScript and Babel working together.

  1. I just wonder what the benefit will be.
  2. Can anyone tell me? It would appear that since TS has added support for ES6 that you don't really need Babel.
  3. The one thing that seems probable is Babel supporting new features sooner, but TS doesn't seem to be too far behind at the moment.
