How to create your own TypeScript type definition files (.d.ts) and contribute to DefinitelyTyped on GitHub

So I decided to spend some time on Twitter looking for interesting TypeScript news. Over the last year I’ve been using the @DubTypeScript account to share TypeScript news. This is the official account of the Dublin TypeScript Meetup which is based in Dublin (Ireland) and is organized by myself. I was searching for interesting tweets when I found the following one: When I saw this tweet I was automatically thrilled because it is AWESOME when you find an opportunity to help the community like this.

I really think it is sad that only a small percentage of all the software engineers out there contribute to open source. Hoodie aims to be one of open source’s most diverse and inclusive communities - opensource.com And the “Your First PR” initiative: Your First PR helps you get started contributing to Open Source by showcasing great starter issues on Github and elsewhere. - Your First PR Head to the main file to see its source code.

With our efforts on Dojo 2, we’ve been very excited about many of the features and improvements made, including several key improvements that have landed for TypeScript 2, which is currently in beta release! Control flow type analysis TypeScript 2 adds a major improvement in the type analysis of code. Now types are narrowed and widened recognizing the flow of the code. Previously, there were limits where you could allow narrowing of a type within a closure before, but when outside of the block, it would reset the type. With TypeScript 2.0, the code is statically analyzed and types are narrowed, widened or changed in line with the logic of the code. ES2015 (ES6) + Typescript Tutorial - 24 - Introduction to Modules.

The Code Project article can be found at: The previous article also stepped through using Gulp to package an Angular 2 application for both development and production release purposes including the bundling and injecting of HTML templates into Angular 2 components. This article will dig into some of the key aspects of the Angular 2 and TypeScript code for the sample customer maintenance application included in both articles. Get started with writing TypeScript today! Tabs vs. spaces isn’t the only big discussion point in the world of programming.

Another point of contention lies in statically-typed vs. dynamically-typed languages. TypeScript is Microsoft’s attempt to add a stronger type system to JavaScript while making both camps happy.

Configuring Webpack with Typescript ← David Barreto

In this tutorial we are going to expand on that article to add support for Typescript. Because any Javascript file (even ES6) is a valid Typescript file, the first step of our improved build system will be to change the extension of the files main.js and person.js to main.ts and person.ts. Given that we are now in the Typescript realm, we can get rid of the exports/require syntax that we used before and implement the cleaner export/import syntax like shown below: import { person } from ".

/person"; console.log(person.firstName + ' ' + person.lastName); Functional TypeScript — Angular 2. Functional TypeScript When discussing functional programming we often talk about the machinery, and not the core principles.

Functional TypeScript — Angular 2

Functional programming is not about monads, monoids, or zippers, even though those are useful to know. It is primarily about writing programs by composing generic reusable functions. Learn TypeScript in 30 Minutes. Danny Markov Today we’re going to take a look at TypeScript, a compile-to-JavaScript language designed for developers who build large and complex apps.

An Introduction to TypeScript: Static Typing for the Web

You hear these sorts of things from front-end developers all the time. It’s become fashionable to use new ways of improving on JavaScript’s old faults and that’s not a bad thing; even ES2015 has been a pretty determined attempt at righting those wrongs and it’s currently the official version of the language.

CoffeeScript was the first compiler that appeared on my radar a few years back, and after spending a bit of time playing around with it, I wasn’t convinced.

Yes, it has some niceties that make working in JavaScript easier, but unlike JavaScript, it’s not something that the majority of developers have dealt with. It’s not a syntax most developers have dealt with. And the learning curve is arguably bigger than just jumping into JavaScript. Now this isn’t an attack on CoffeeScript at all; it’s an observation on all the various “languages” and abstractions that require some form of “compiler” to turn them into something the browser understands. I was wrong about TypeScript. Here is why. My initial thoughts after TypeScript was announced When Anders Hejlsberg is working on something, that project automatically has my full attention.

An Introduction to TypeScript: Static Typing for the Web. Migrating a 10,000-line legacy JavaScript codebase to TypeScript. Summary I recount my experiences migrating the 6.5-year-old, 10,000-line codebase of Python Tutor from “old-school” HTML/CSS/JavaScript to a modern 2016-era development workflow using Webpack and TypeScript. I started working on Python Tutor in January 2010, about 6.5 years ago. Since then, its web-based frontend has grown to around 10,000 lines of JavaScript code (the vast majority written by me) spread throughout multiple files, interfacing with several versions of third-party libraries, and imported in idiosyncratic orders by different HTML files with a tangle of script tags.

Even though the system works well and is now supporting thousands of daily active users from around the world, its codebase has gotten to a point where its complexity is too much for me to stand.
