FAQ

Why?

This project is used by decaffeinate to add variable declarations to converted CoffeeScript code. This project is not intended to allow you to write JavaScript without variable declarations, as I consider that a bad practice for the same reasons it's a bad practice in CoffeeScript.

Why var? Shouldn't this use let and const?

Yes, but not all situations allow the use of let and const, such as when the variable binding takes advantage of hoisting. If you want let and const you can use this library in combination with esnext which will turn all eligible var declarations into let or const as appropriate.
