Optional chaining on the left side in Javascript

It's not possible, sorry.

In the interest of a canonical answer: The MDN documentation isn't explicit about this, but you can read the proposal's README in GitHub for more information. It says:

The following is not supported, although it has some use cases; see Issue #18 for discussion:

  • optional property assignment: a?.b = c

In the linked issue are the comments 1:

OK, seems like there's a rough agreement in this thread not to do the write case in the first iteration.

and 2:

We also discussed this question at TC39, and the committee did not seem so interested in adding this feature.

So I guess it's not likely to happen anytime soon.

Hope that helps; good luck!
