ES2015 typeof symbol transform

This transformer wraps all `typeof` expressions with a method that replicates native behaviour. (ie. returning "symbol" for symbols)

Example

In

typeof Symbol() === "symbol";

Out

var _typeof = function (obj) {
  return obj && obj.constructor === Symbol ? "symbol" : typeof obj;
};

_typeof(Symbol()) === "symbol";

Installation

npm install --save-dev babel-plugin-transform-es2015-typeof-symbol

Usage

.babelrc

{
  "plugins": ["transform-es2015-typeof-symbol"]
}

Via CLI

babel --plugins transform-es2015-typeof-symbol script.js

Via Node API

require("babel-core").transform("code", {
  plugins: ["transform-es2015-typeof-symbol"]
});
