Flow comments

Turn flow type annotations into comments

You should be able to use this plugin instead of babel-plugin-flow-strip-types to preserve the /* @flow */ directive and still use flow.

Example

In

function foo(bar?) {}

type B = {
  name: string;
};

import type A, { B, C } from './types';
import typeof D, { E, F } from './types';

Out
