What is Sucrase?
Sucrase is an alternative to Babel that allows super-fast development builds. Instead of compiling a large range of JS features down to ES5, Sucrase assumes that you're targeting a modern JS runtime (e.g. Node.js 8 or latest Chrome) and focuses on compiling non-standard language extensions: JSX, TypeScript, and Flow.
Sucrase is an open source tool with 2.5K GitHub stars and 62 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Sucrase's open source repository on GitHub

Refactor any field or method with ease, with the confidence that if you mess it up the editor will tell you immediately
This allows applications and libraries originally designed to run as standard executables to be integrated into client side web applications.
