       esbuild - an extremely fast JavaScript bundler and minifier


       esbuild [options] [entry points]


       esbuild is a JavaScript bundler and minifier.  It packages up JavaScript and TypeScript
       code for distribution on the web.

       Why build another JavaScript build tool?  The current build tools for the web are at least
       an order of magnitude slower than they should be.  It is hoped that this project serves as
       an “existence proof” that JavaScript tooling can be much, much faster.


              Bundle all dependencies into the output files

              Substitute K with V while parsing

              Exclude module M from the bundle

              Output format (iife | cjs | esm, no default when not bundling, otherwise default is
              iife when platform is browser and cjs when platform is node)

              The name of the global for the IIFE format

              What to use instead of React.createElement

              What to use instead of React.Fragment

              Use loader L to load file extension X, where L is one of: js | jsx | ts | tsx |
              json | text | base64 | file | dataurl | binary

              Sets all --minify-* flags

              Remove whitespace

              Shorten identifiers

              Use equivalent but shorter syntax

              The output directory (for multiple entry points)

              The output file (for one entry point)

              Platform target (browser | node | neutral, default browser)

              Start a local HTTP server on this host:port for outputs

              Emit a source map

              Enable code splitting (currently only for esm)

              Print some helpful information at the end of a build

              Environment target (e.g. es2017, chrome58, firefox57, safari11, edge16, node10,
              default esnext)

              Watch mode: rebuild on file system changes


              Text to be prepended to each output file

              Do not escape UTF-8 code points

              Force use of color terminal escapes (true | false)

              Maximum error count or 0 to disable (default 10)

              Text to be appended to each output file

              Import the file F into all input files and automatically replace matching globals
              with imports

              Preserve “name” on functions and classes

              Disable logging (info | warning | error | silent, default info)

              Override the main file order in package.json (default “browser,module,main” when
              platform is browser and “main,module” when platform is node)

              Write metadata about the build to a JSON file

              Use a custom output extension instead of “.js”

              The base path used to determine entry point output paths (for multiple entry

              Set the base URL for the “file” loader

              Mark the name N as a pure function for tree shaking

              A comma-separated list of implicit extensions (default

              Set the source file for the source map (for stdin)

              Do not link to the source map with a comment

              Emit the source map with an inline data URL

              Omit “sourcesContent” in generated source maps

              Set to “ignore-annotations” to work with packages

              Use this tsconfig.json file instead of other ones

              Print the current version (0.8.39) and exit


       esbuild --bundle entry_point.js --outdir=dist --minify --sourcemap
           # Produces dist/entry_point.js and dist/

       esbuild --bundle entry_point.js --outfile=out.js --loader:.js=jsx
           # Allow JSX syntax in .js files

       esbuild example.js --outfile=out.js --define:RELEASE=true
           # Substitute the identifier RELEASE for the literal true

       esbuild --minify --loader=ts < input.ts > output.js
           # Provide input via stdin, get output via stdout
