Babylonia

A zero-dependency package which vendors all @babel modules for security and simplicity. It follows the same versioning scheme as babel: e.g. babylonia@7.2.2 includes @babel/core@7.2.2.

Usage

Simply require babylonia instead of @babel/core. All modules typically residing under @babel/ will resolve with babylonia/ as a prefix.

const fs = require('fs');
const path = require('path');
const babel = require('babylonia');
const filename = path.resolve(process.argv[2]);

const options = {
  presets: [
    ['babylonia/preset-env', {
      targets: {
        browsers: ['last 2 versions']
      },
      useBuiltIns: 'usage',
      loose: true
    }]
  ],
  filename,
  code: true,
  ast: false
};

const config = babel.loadPartialConfig(options);
const code = fs.readFileSync(filename, 'utf8');

babel.transform(code, config.options, (err, result) => {
  if (err)
    throw err;

  console.log(result.code);
});

As an extra bonus, babylonia users never have to consider which @babel modules to add to their package.json.

CLI Usage

This module will provide babel, babel-external-helpers, babel-node, and babel-parser commands. This will conflict with the regular @babel/cli, @babel/node, and @babel/parser.

$ babel -h

Disclaimer & Reasoning

Although its snappy name may make it look like one, Babylonia is not an official @babel module. It's simply a snapshot of all @babel NPM packages. It was specifically created for the bcoin development cycle. Bcoin is a cryptocurrency project whose devs and users are particularly target-able for certain kinds of package attacks like the one seen on the event-stream package. As such, we seek to minimize the NPM attack surface.

Why not use shrinkwrap?

Bundling the dependencies directly allows one to clone directly from github without having to run npm install. We are aiming to minimize reliance on NPM altogether.

Why not use babel-standalone?

babel-standalone by itself does not provide a complete solution. Several plugins and presets would still need to be included. Furthermore, as of babel@7.2.2 babel-preset-env-standalone is broken and throws an error when required.

Why not bundle it?

Babel is a massive codebase and it is non-trivial to compile it into a single file (as evidenced by the official babel-preset-env-standalone package not even working!), especially when its baked-in behavior assumes dynamic requires for things like presets and plugins.
