TypeScript has been around for quite along time however some of the early 1.x versions were a bit of a pain to work with as the type definition files were clunky and often incomplete leading to a lot of wasted time debugging. Over the last few years the language has matured and become well adopted especially after Angular 2 announced it’s inclusion.

TypeScript 2.x includes many improvements including far better support for external type definitions. It’s now relatively easy to include TypeScript in both your front end and Node projects, and the benefits become quickly apparent. If you’re already working with ES6 then chances are you’ll just need to make a few tweaks to your build routine. For Node you need to compile the typescript and run the compiled files rather than the original files.

If you’re looking at introducing TypeScript to either your client side code or your Node projects and would like some support then please get in touch.
