About

ECMAScript 6 is the new edition to the ECMAScript language, whose specifications are inherited by JavaScript. ES6 gives a vast makeover to JavaScript by adding new syntaxes and APIs to write complex applications and libraries that are easier to debug and maintain. By learning the latest version of ECMAScript, you'll have a greater understanding of JavaScript and more confidence and fluency when developing with it - follow this book and use and adopt ES6 features into your work, instead of the usual tired JavaScript hacks and tricks.

The book begins by introducing ECMAScript 6's built-in objects and  shows you how to create custom Iterators.  It also provides you with guidance on Next, how to write asynchronous code in a synchronous style using ES6, so you can unlock greater control and sophistication in the way you develop with JavaScript.

Beyond this, you will also learn how to use Reflect API to inspect and manipulate object properties. Next, it teaches how to create proxies, and use it to intercept and customize operations performed on objects. Finally, it explains old modular programming techniques such as IIFE, CommonJS, AMD, and UMD and also compares it with ECMAScript modules and demonstrates how modules can increase the performance of websites when used.

Features
  • Learn a powerful approach to writing object-oriented JavaScript code using the newest version of ECMAScript
  • Create and use ES6 modules to learn to write smart, modularized JavaScript code
  • Find out how to use ECMAScript modules - discover how they can boost the performance of your website
