pcf-scripts: target ES6

I'm not a big Webpack/Babel/tsconfig ninja, that's why I'm asking this. 🙂

ATM this is the tsconfig file for pcf-scripts:


  "compilerOptions": {
    "jsx": "react",
    "target": "es5",
    "module": "commonjs",
    "lib": ["ES6", "DOM"],
    "strict": true,
    "strictPropertyInitialization": false
  "exclude": [


I'm using some other libs when developing my component thus I have to set target: es6 and lib: ["es2015", "dom"].

I took a look at webpackConfig.js, but didn't notice anything forbidding me to do so.

Using the new tsconfig the component compiles successfully.

So is it possible to make these changes and not break the pac tool(s)?

I target ES6 when debugging in chrome so that you get the source maps without all the es5 transpiled code. Make sure you set it back to es5 for release otherwise your code won’t work on non-es6 supporting browsers!

You are right, thanks! I didn't find any settings which might transpile the code to ES5 or lower using Babel in pcf-scripts.

I checked my bundle.js and if I switch to target ES6, it stays ES6 😞
