Babel/core warnings

I typically get warnings that certain packages are claiming to need babel/core as a dependency. I know that Meteor does use Babel under the hood to support modern JavaScript features, but it encapsulates this within its own packages, so you don’t typically interact with Babel directly when working with Meteor. This is part of Meteor’s philosophy of being an “all-in-one” solution that minimizes the need for configuration.

My question is would installing babel/core potentially interfere with Meteor’s own Babel configuration?

I believe that installing babel/core separately may interfere with Meteor’s own Babel configuration, so it’s best to rely on Meteor’s built-in packages for Babel functionality. Modifying Babel configuration within the Meteor ecosystem ensures compatibility and consistency.
