Yes, there is general interest in doing that.
We already got respective branches called
ES2015 on our projects that explore using
import instead of CJS requires. On the other hand we do not plan to invest implementation resources into the topic in the near future.
Before we do the switch, we need to get answers to the following things:
- How does it (and the necessary transpilation) effect bundling / testing?
- How does it affect bundle sizes (should not get bigger)?
- How does it affect performance?
If we end up with massive bundles or we cannot develop any more because test execution takes ages I'd rather stay with ES5 for now.
