ES6 exporting/importing in index file

I am currently using ES6 in an React app via webpack/bable.
I am using index files to gather all components of a module and export them. Unfortunately, that looks like this:

import Comp1_ from './Comp1.jsx';
import Comp2_ from './Comp2.jsx';
import Comp3_ from './Comp3.jsx';

export const Comp1 = Comp1_;
export const Comp2 = Comp2_;
export const Comp3 = Comp3_;


So I can nicely import it from other places like this:

import { Comp1, Comp2, Comp3 } from './components';


Obviously that isn't a very nice solution, so I was wondering, if there was any other way. I don't seem to able to export the imported component directly.

Best regards

Answer

You can easily re-export the default import:

export {default as Comp1} from './Comp1.jsx';
export {default as Comp2} from './Comp2.jsx';
export {default as Comp3} from './Comp3.jsx';

There also is a proposal for ES7 ES8 that will let you write export Comp1 from '…';.
