Atom Packages written in ES6


Hi was trying to create a new package for Atom and I used the package generator, the generated code is in ES6, so far so good. Since haven’t done this before I was looking for examples and reading the Atom API documentation, but everything is in coffeescript. Are you guys under a transition period? Do you guys know where can I found more documentation or even existing packages written wtih ES6.


There’s indeed a transition from CoffeeScript to ES6 (Babel) going on, both by Atom core packages and community packages.

Here’s a list of packages that I know of that have switched to or are build in ES6:


You can also look at all of my atom packages - they’re all written in ES6.


Thanks guys with a bit of magic, reading coffescript and ES6. I was able to create my super simple basic package.
