This package is based on
event-target-shim. Although the original package contains an ES5 bundle, it did not contains an ES5 module. Importing the module directly or indirectly may break web apps running on ES5 browsers.
On install, this package will transpile your version of
event-target-shim to make it compatible with ES5 browsers.
Package authors should consider importing this package instead of
event-target-shim, so your packages will not break your users due to having
event-target-shim as a transient dependency.

npm install event-target-shim event-target-shim-es5

How it works

event-target-shim. Thus, you can select your own version of
When you update
npm install event-target-shim-es5 to get the latest package transpiled.
Instead of importing this package, there are alternative workarounds you can use.
Including the source code
You can copy the source code of
event-target-shim into your web app and use your build pipeline transpile the original package.
When copying, be sure to include the original license and continue to depends on the package to make sure
npm audit will scan for vulnerabilities.
Modify your bundler configuration
Webpack do not transpile code under
/node_modules/ unless specified explicitly. You can modify
webpack.config.js to include
/node_modules/event-target-shim/ and use
babel-loader to transpile it on-the-fly.
