I have JavaScript code that uses things like let, async, etc. My eclipse Photon flags it as errors. I installed WTP (SDK, Bundle, Dependencies, etc.). It still does not recognize ES6. Being a newbie to eclipse, getting the exact sequence to add ES6 support would be greatly appreciated!

With over 1200 views and no response, I conclude that eclipse Photon doesn't support JavaScript ES6. It would have been nice for some official statement.

I'm running into a similar problem: how to get Photon (or whatever version of Eclipse you may be running) to use an Ecma version of your choosing. The asynch-await construct is apparently not part of ES 6, but rather ES 7. But I'm unable to find a way to make Photon see or respect the configuration of my javascript project; i.e., Eclipse has a nice little red icon with letter N for package.json files -- so it seems to know what node-based javascript projects are...but it doesn't seem to utilize those definitions. Nor have I found a way to activate a tern server to do it - although I haven't spent a ton of time on that avenue yet.
