Package description

What is core-js?

The core-js npm package is a modular standard library for JavaScript, which includes polyfills for ECMAScript features. It provides reliable polyfills to ensure that code behaves consistently across different environments, including older browsers.

What are core-js's main functionalities?

Polyfilling ECMAScript features

This feature allows developers to use the latest ECMAScript features while ensuring backward compatibility with older environments that do not support these features natively.

require('core-js/stable');
// Now you can use ES6 features like Promise in environments that do not support them natively.

Polyfilling Web Standards

Core-js can also polyfill web standards, allowing developers to use modern web APIs in environments that have not implemented them.

require('core-js/web');
// This includes polyfills for web standards like DOM collections (e.g., NodeList), timers, and more.

Polyfilling Proposals

Developers can experiment with proposed ECMAScript features before they are finalized and adopted into the standard, ensuring forward compatibility.

require('core-js/proposals');
// This will include polyfills for ECMAScript proposals that are not yet part of the standard.

I highly recommend reading this: So, what's next?

Modular standard library for JavaScript. Includes polyfills for ECMAScript up to 2023: promises, symbols, collections, iterators, typed arrays, many other features, ECMAScript proposals, some cross-platform WHATWG / W3C features and proposals like URL. You can load only required features or use it without global namespace pollution.

Example of usage:

import 'core-js/actual';

Promise.resolve(42).then(it => console.log(it)); // => 42

Array.from(new Set([1, 2, 3]).union(new Set([3, 4, 5]))); // => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

[1, 2].flatMap(it => [it, it]); // => [1, 1, 2, 2]

(function * (i) { while (true) yield i++; })(1)
  .drop(1).take(5)
  .filter(it => it % 2)
  .map(it => it ** 2)
  .toArray(); // => [9, 25]

structuredClone(new Set([1, 2, 3])); // => new Set([1, 2, 3])

You can load only required features:

import 'core-js/actual/promise';
import 'core-js/actual/set';
import 'core-js/actual/iterator';
import 'core-js/actual/array/from';
import 'core-js/actual/array/flat-map';
import 'core-js/actual/structured-clone';

Promise.resolve(42).then(it => console.log(it)); // => 42

Array.from(new Set([1, 2, 3]).union(new Set([3, 4, 5]))); // => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

[1, 2].flatMap(it => [it, it]); // => [1, 1, 2, 2]

(function * (i) { while (true) yield i++; })(1)
  .drop(1).take(5)
  .filter(it => it % 2)
  .map(it => it ** 2)
  .toArray(); // => [9, 25]

structuredClone(new Set([1, 2, 3])); // => new Set([1, 2, 3])

Or use it without global namespace pollution:

import Promise from 'core-js-pure/actual/promise';
import Set from 'core-js-pure/actual/set';
import Iterator from 'core-js-pure/actual/iterator';
import from from 'core-js-pure/actual/array/from';
import flatMap from 'core-js-pure/actual/array/flat-map';
import structuredClone from 'core-js-pure/actual/structured-clone';

Promise.resolve(42).then(it => console.log(it)); // => 42

from(new Set([1, 2, 3]).union(new Set([3, 4, 5]))); // => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

flatMap([1, 2], it => [it, it]); // => [1, 1, 2, 2]

Iterator.from(function * (i) { while (true) yield i++; }(1))
  .drop(1).take(5)
  .filter(it => it % 2)
  .map(it => it ** 2)
  .toArray(); // => [9, 25]

structuredClone(new Set([1, 2, 3])); // => new Set([1, 2, 3])

It's a global version (first 2 examples), for more info see core-js documentation.
