Upgrading Guide

This documentation is a guide about how to update ThinkJS from 2.0 to 2.1, look at here if you want to update from 1.x to 2.0.

Updating From 2.0 to 2.1

Update ThinkJS Dependency Versions

Change Thinkjs's version to 2.1.x in package.json.

Updating Babel to version 6

ThinkJS has used Babel 5 for compiling, and now it has updated to 6 in the ThinkJS 2.1, so we need to modify Babel's version.

You can remove all dependencies about Babel in package.json, and append the following dependencies:

  "dependencies": {
    "babel-runtime": "6.x.x"
  "devDependencies": {
    "babel-cli": "6.x.x",
    "babel-preset-es2015-loose": "6.x.x",
    "babel-preset-stage-1": "6.x.x",
    "babel-plugin-transform-runtime": "6.x.x",
    "babel-core": "6.x.x"

Then, run npm install to install new dependencies. Delete app/ folder and run npm start to start project.

Change Compiling Command

Change compiling command in package.json to babel --presets es2015-loose,stage-1 --plugins transform-runtime src/ --out-dir app/ --retain-lines
