"Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token { " using Reactify


I am following a tutorial to create a FixedDataTable with React. However, I have some issues getting the following line to work in my jsx-file:

const {Table, Column, Cell} = require('fixed-data-table');

which gives the error (in Chrome):

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token {

I am using browserify and reactify to transform my jsx code to javascript. Other lines using require work fine.

I am quite new to JavaScript and React and would appreciate any suggestions to solve hte problem.




The issue was as pointed out in the comments that the ES6 option in reactify wasn't activated. I edited the following row in my gulpfile:

transform: [
    [ 'reactify', {'es6': true} ]

And then it worked. As a workaround I found out that you also can do:

var FixedDataTable = require('fixed-data-table');

var Table = FixedDataTable.Table;

var Column = FixedDataTable.Column;

instead of

var {Table, Column, Cell} = require('fixed-data-table');
