Node.js babel different usage transpiling to ES5 and Debugging

There are different usages of babel tool. I put a sample package.json file. Notice that there are scripts block which has different usages.

Creating Babel configuration file


  "presets": [
  "plugins": [
  "sourceMaps": true,
  "retainLines": true

Running with Babel-node

//If you have installed babel-cli package globally, run below code.
babel-node --presets=env --plugins=transform-runtime src


//If you have .babelrc config file, run below code without specifying inline arguments.
babel-node src


//If you have installed babel-cli package locally, run below code.
./node_modules/.bin/babel-node --presets=env --plugins=transform-runtime src

Running with Babel-register

node --require ./node_modules/babel-register src


node --require babel-register src/index.js

You can reach github project from the following link.

Github Connect with your SSH Public Key

If you are using git for your projects, you need to run some git commands such as clone, pull or push. So, let’s say that you want to clone one git project and if it is asking your username and password, you can create a SSH Public Key for your pc, after that you can paste it your github account so that you will never need to specify username and password.

You can follow below screenshot to create a SSH Public Key. After you create it, copy created SSH Public Key from terminal and paste it to GitHub SSH Keygen window like below.

Follow below screenshots to add your SSH Public Key in your GitHub account.

C# Pipeline Handler & Logger

I have created a demo project for log handler and TryCatch wrapper (

I need a logger which can write to console and file at the same time. So, I created this demo which creates logger pipeline dynamicly. When code runs, it will write message in console and FileLog.log file at the same time.
