In case you have to pass some secure token to Travis-CI i recommend the travis-cli tool for decryption and lots of other features. You can read more about it here. Linux / OS X Installation via sudo gem install travis. You can also set Token on GitHub in the Repository Settings.

ECMAScript 2015 / ES6

Node.js comes with a huge set of ES6 features out of the box. A detailed list of supported features can be found at To speed things up and avoid transpiling natively supported features i recommend to install only the missing parts in your current Node Version:

  • npm install --save-dev babel-preset-es2015-node6 - Node.js Version 6x
  • npm install --save-dev babel-preset-es2015-node5 - Node.js Version 5x
  • npm install --save-dev babel-preset-es2015-node4 - Node.js Version 4x
  • npm install --save-dev babel-preset-es2015 - for all Node.js Versions


At the moment im busy working on this boilerplate and lot stuff is changing.
When things getting more stable i will bump the version to 1.0.0 and write a detailed documentation.
