Horribly confused by transpilation/Javascript minesweeper


This is supposed to be a course for beginners but this is a huge stumbling block for me and very frustrating.

This is from the Javascript minesweeper project

Initialize your project using npm init

I’m assuming that this is for the command line but in what sub-folder? Projects? src?

Create a .babelrc file inside your project and add the following code inside it:

Again, what sub-folder is it referring to?

When I try to run the minesweeper.js file there’s no lib?

I don’t think transpilation is very well explained.
