What would you like to do?
simple example of getting babel 6 running
"presets": ["es2015"]

to run,

npm start

You can not use ES6 import syntax in the same file you register in, so, require it, and then you can use import in the required files.

Alternativley, you could have require babel from the command line instead and load the file directly node -r babel-register hello.js

import webpack from 'webpack'
console.log('hello babel world')
