Anyone with a bit of common sense and looking outside the bubble of babel discussions.
As it is right now, if you run babel, it will silently pass input to output. It will not even warn you that you need presets or plugins or anything to process the file. Why? Oh, because the site clearly states that you need to always install it with a “latest-preset”? Why not include it in the default installation from the start? Why not fail if there are no presets or plugins? Why not issue a wrning if there are no presets or plugins?
