How to Compress ES6 files with maven for an Jira Plugin


I have an ES6 compliant JS file, which I am trying to include in my Jira Plugin. unfortunately, when i run atlas-package the following error occurs.


[INFO] --- maven-amps-plugin:6.3.1:compress-resources (default-compress-resources) @ risk-management ---
[INFO] Compiling javascript using YUI
[ERROR] syntax error
AJS.toInit($ => {

[ERROR] Compilation produced 1 syntax errors.

I tried to insert this Code snippet in the Chrome console and it just works like a charm. Is there a way to use ES6 or do i have to use the old ways of JS?

After some search I came to conclusion that using


option in maven-amps-plugin configuration is the only way right now. 

amps plugin comes with yuicompressor v2.4.7 from ancient 2012's

for JS compression you can use any other plugin or just don't use compression.
