Readme

babel-plugin-proto-to-assign
The proto-to-assignplugin will transform all __proto__ assignments to a method that will do a shallow copy of all properties.
This means that the following will work:
var foo = { a: 1 };
var bar = { b: 2 };
bar.__proto__ = foo;
bar.a; // 1
bar.b; // 2

however the following will not:
var foo = { a: 1 };
var bar = { b: 2 };
bar.__proto__ = foo;
bar.a; // 1
foo.a = 2;
bar.a; // 1 - should be 2 but remember that nothing is bound and it's a straight copy

This is a case that you have to be aware of if you intend to use this plugin.

Example

In
bar.__proto__ = foo;

Out
var _defaults = ...;

_defaults(bar, foo);
