Thank you for supporting swc-legacy.



swc is a super-fast alternative for Babel.

The funds are intended to be used to support full-time maintainers vs. just a small group of volunteers.

swc helps you write the latest version of JavaScript, and is helping shape the future of the language itself.

When your target browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE) don't support certain features natively, it helps you compile it down to a supported version.

In short, developers want to take advantage of the latest syntax in JavaScript before it's implemented in browsers, now. Because the version of JavaScript depends on the client's browser, we can't rely on the fact they are using an up to date browser.

swc abstracts the browser away so that you can worry about writing your application rather than trying to figure out what features are supported in each one.
