Docusaurus allows sites to define the list of supported browsers through a browserslist configuration.


Os sites precisam se equilibrar entre compatibilidade com versões anteriores e tamanho do pacote. As old browsers do not support modern APIs or syntax, more code is needed to implement the same functionality.

For example, you may use the optional chaining syntax:

const value = obj?.prop?.val;

...which unfortunately is only recognized by browser versions released after 2020. To be compatible with earlier browser versions, when building your site for production, our JS loader will transpile your code to a more verbose syntax:

var _obj, _obj$prop;

const value =
(_obj = obj) === null || _obj === void 0
? void 0
: (_obj$prop = _obj.prop) === null || _obj$prop === void 0
? void 0
: _obj$prop.val;

However, this penalizes all other users with increased site load time because the 29-character line now becomes 168 characters—a 6-fold increase! (In practice, it will be better because the names used will be shorter.) As a tradeoff, the JS loader only transpiles the syntax to the degree that's supported by all browser versions defined in the browser list.

The browser list by default is provided through the package.json file as a root browserslist field.


On old browsers, the compiled output will use unsupported (too recent) JS syntax, causing React to fail to initialize and end up with a static website with only HTML/CSS and no JS.

Default values

Websites initialized with the default classic template has the following in package.json:

"name": "docusaurus",
// ...
"browserslist": {
"production": [">0.5%", "not dead", "not op_mini all"],
"development": [
"last 1 chrome version",
"last 1 firefox version",
"last 1 safari version"
// ...

Explicado em linguagem natural, os navegadores com suporte na produção são os seguintes:

  • With more than 0.5% of market share; and
  • Has official support or updates in the past 24 months (the opposite of "dead"); and
  • Não é Opera Mini.

E os navegadores usados em desenvolvimento são:

  • The latest version of Chrome or Firefox or Safari.

You can "evaluate" any config with the browserslist CLI to obtain the actual list:

npx browserslist --env="production"

The output is all browsers supported in production. Below is the output in January 2022:

and_chr 96
and_uc 12.12
chrome 96
chrome 95
chrome 94
edge 96
