Markdown Documents of ES8

# Timothy Liu (7 months ago)

Dear Community:

Can anybody point me to the markdown format document of ES 2017? Recently I'm preparing to write an introduction level book for ES 2017, and I want to read the standard cautiously first.

Best , Tim

The easiest version of the spec to read is probably the HTML version at www.ecma-international.org/ecma-262/8.0. There isn't a markdown version to look at. The spec is maintained in tc39/ecma262/blob/master/spec.html as HTML markup with some custom elements.

Since you want ES2017 specifically, the ecma-international URL is the best; however, tc39.github.io/ecma262 will always be the most up-to-date version, so it'd be a very nice thing if your book pointed users there.

Sure, that’s my pleasure 😊
