  • es6-transpiler – ES6 > ES5. Includes classes, destructuring, default parameters, spread
  • Square’s es6-module-transpiler – ES6 modules to AMD or CJS
  • Facebook’s regenerator – transform ES6 yield/generator functions to ES5
  • Facebook’s jstransform – A simple utility for pluggable JS syntax transforms. Comes with a small set of ES6 -> ES5 transforms
  • defs – ES6 block-scoped const and let variables to ES3 vars
  • es6_module_transpiler-rails – ES6 Modules in the Rails Asset Pipeline
  • Some Sweet.js macros that compile from ES6 to ES5
