The largest package repository in the world (for any programming language) is npm. It’s the package manager that comes with Node.js, but it’s also widely used for client-side modules using solutions like Webpack.
ES6+ is the current standard, and you can use ES6 module syntax in browsers with npm + Webpack. My current recommendation for production is to use ES6 module syntax — both in Node and in the browser.
