Can I Use Decorators?

Some popular libraries use decorators in their documentation.

Create React App intentionally doesnโ€™t support decorator syntax at the moment because:

  • It is an experimental proposal and is subject to change (in fact, it has already changed once, and will change again).
  • Most libraries currently support only the old version of the proposal โ€” which will never be a standard.

However in many cases you can rewrite decorator-based code without decorators and achieve the same result.

Please refer to these two threads for reference:

Create React App will add decorator support when the specification advances to a stable stage.
