Babel language

Why is ES6 (or Babel) language available, but not reported? What am I missing?

Yeah, these are older "languages" that used to be on the language list. I wouldn't recommend using stuff you don't see on the Language List (https://repl.it/languages) since I don't think they're updated anymore. From the language list "JavaScript" is supposed to redirect to NodeJS. If you want browser JavaScript, you're going to have to click on the "HTML,CSS,JS" language from the list.

I'm not sure why they "removed Babel". Maybe because they realized it was a bit unnecessary since people could just write ESNext in a NodeJS repl with @babel/node or something.

Hopefully that helped :P

Yes, @eankeen: this makes a lot of sense.
