Every reserved word of ECMA6 (like import, class, or whatever) throws an "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected reserved word" error in Chrome 45 and an "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token import" error in Chrome Canary.
I will appreciate any help. And, because I asked this a few months ago without getting any answer but "possible duplicate" of this Using ECMAScript 6 , it is not. It does not solve my problem.
--- EDIT --- I want to use modules, since I like more the ecma6 modules than using Require or Common. And I also like the sugar syntax of classes, code looks better :)
As for classes, you may be able to use these natively without having to go through a transpiler. You can check the compatibility table here to see which browsers support classes natively today:
As of right now, you can see that the majority of browsers do not yet support classes natively. However, if you are using Babel or Traceur, that shouldn't be a concern.
type="module" to the script tag. That should solve your problem.
Here are a couple feature lists that tell you what features work in Chrome 45.
Chrome Feature Status: https://www.chromestatus.com/features
ES6 compatibility matrix: https://kangax.github.io/compat-table/es6/
What you will find is that many features such as the
class sugar syntax work fine in Chrome 45, but require strict mode in order to be enabled.
For example, if you run this jsFiddle that uses
class in Chrome 45 or greater, it will work: http://jsfiddle.net/jfriend00/xd56k8n3/. If you run it outside of strict mode, it reports
Uncaught SyntaxError: Block-scoped declarations (let, const, function, class) not yet supported outside strict mode.
Modules do not look like they yet have support in any browser.
FYI, one common way to write code now in ES6 is to use a transpiler like Babel or Traceur that you feed ES6 code into and it converts it to ES5-compatible code that runs in current browsers. You get to write in ES6, but have compatibility with current browsers.
