It’s easy to get up and running with TypeScript, a strongly-typed superset of JavaScript. We’ll cover:

  • installing the compiler with Node.js
  • compiling TypeScript to JavaScript
  • auto-watching source files for changes
  • fixing code errors found by TypeScript

For this video, I used Sublime Text 3 without any TypeScript package installed. However, I recommend trying Microsoft's TypeScript package. It's in alpha state, but has excellent code completion, safe renaming, go to declaration and find references.


It can be installed via the popular Package Control in Sublime. Look for the package named simply "TypeScript".
