Deploying ES2015+ Code in Production Today

Philip Walton suggests making two copies of your production JavaScript. Easy enough to do with a Babel-based build process.

<!-- Browsers with ES module support load this file. --> <script type="module" src="main.js"></script>  <!-- Older browsers load this file (and module-supporting --> <!-- browsers know *not* to load this file). --> <script nomodule src="main-legacy.js"></script>

He put together a demo project for it all and you’re looking at 50% file size savings. I would think there would be other speed improvements as well, by using modern JavaScript methods directly.
