In this post i’m sharing the migration process of the youtube-list component – which uses the youtube-media component, as well as implementing a smart component […]

Converting angular 1.x code to use ES2015 is one thing. It’s an iterative process that should be taken with great care. However, aside from converting the code, you should also convert the tests to the setup environment. In this article I share the setup I use for running Echoes Player tests with karma & browserify.
Recently, I started refactoring Echoes Player, my open source project, from angular ES5 to angular 1 with ES2015 (former ES6). I’m following several concepts and i’de like to share the process of converting an angular 1 directive written with es5 to an angular 1 component using ES2015.
