Configuring SWC

SWC can be configured with an .swcrc file.

Compilation

Compilation works out of the box with SWC and does not require customization. Optionally, you can override the configuration. Here are the defaults:

{
"jsc": {
"parser": {
"syntax": "ecmascript",
"jsx": false,
"dynamicImport": false,
"privateMethod": false,
"functionBind": false,
"exportDefaultFrom": false,
"exportNamespaceFrom": false,
"decorators": false,
"decoratorsBeforeExport": false,
"topLevelAwait": false,
"importMeta": false
},
"transform": null,
"target": "es5",
"loose": false,
"externalHelpers": false,
// Requires v1.2.50 or upper and requires target to be es2016 or upper.
"keepClassNames": false
}
}

Supported Browsers

Starting with v1.1.10, you can now use browserslist to automaticallly configure supported browsers.

Usage

First, install browserslist. Then, update your .swcrc:

{
"env": {
"targets": {
"chrome": "79"
},
"mode": "entry",
"coreJs": 3
}
}

Starting with v1.2.67, you can configure SWC to minify your code by enabling minify in your .swcrc file:

{
"minify": true
}
