Common development dependencies for Linguala frontends


3.0.3a year ago4 years agoMinified + gzip package size for @linguala/common-dev-dependencies in KB



This package contains all dependencies for react-based frontends

It should essentially make it easier to deal with

  • ecmascript -> babel-transpilation for each target-platform
  • test-setup
  • handling these common development dependencies for all linguala-packages in a uniform manner.

babel transforms

This setup builds all ES6+ code for the last 2 browser versions and the currently used node version. Based on the babel-preset-env it is decided what kind of babel-transforms should be run on the target platform. In comparison: babel-preset-latest would just apply all babel transforms that are available. We will save some time and resources with this setup as only a subset of transforms need to run.

Usage in your npm (node package module)

Initialize your module with npm init which generates a package.json file folder if you haven't done this already.


To use @linguala/common-dev-dependencies first install it as a development dependency:

  • Run yarn add --dev @linguala/common-dev-dependencies
  • or npm install --save-dev @linguala/common-dev-dependencies


  • name Choose a unique name for your package. If it should be published to https://npmjs.com, prefix it with @linguala, e.g. @linguala/ui-atoms. If it is private add a "private": true in package.json.
  • main is the entrypoint for the transpiled ES5 code.
  • module is the entrypoint for all ES6-compatible code if your target platform supports it.
  • scripts.build is the command to run babel (as it is a dependency of @linguala/common-dev-dependencies it is available in node_modules/ after npm install with npm@3+ flat installation)
  • scripts.prepublish is everything that runs when you run npm publish to publish on https://www.npmjs.com/org/linguala.
  • scripts.what say what? run with npm run what, just an example to run commands in the node environment.
