Node.js and io.js Merge Under the Node Foundation

The io.js TC has voted to join the Node Foundation, leading Node.js and io.js to overcome their differences and merge into a new entity.

This is important for us at JScrambler because it allows us to simplify our build process. Most of our modules are already coded using ES 2015 (the former ES6), which requires us to transpile the source code using Babel.

With all the io.js features to support the newest ES, we can drop Babel usage. This also improves the performance of our software because many of the features impact it (arrows, generators, etc.).


The leader in client-side Web security. With Jscrambler, JavaScript applications become self-defensive and capable of detecting and blocking client-side attacks like Magecart.
