TypeScript support?

Dec 4, 2013 at 12:20 AM
I can't seem to be able to add a typescript file to a project. Are there plans for TS support ?

We have a work item for TypeScript support: https://nodejstools.codeplex.com/workitem/291

It's one of the top voted items and definitely something we'd like to do. Please vote if you haven't already. Thanks!

@huguesv, does the proposed workaround described in workitem #291 using the modified Microsoft.NodejsTools.targets work in Visual Studio 2013 (Ultimate)?

I am not getting any menu options for building the project and no JavaScript files are being generated from the TypeScript files.

I posted a comment on the work item with details.

we'll put out a dev build next week which will have the initial check-in for TypeScript support.

That's great news. There are many people in the TypeScript community who would be delighted - not to mention it's the top voted work item on NTVS.

preliminary typescript support is available in the dev build now: https://nodejstools.codeplex.com/releases/view/116275.

please let us know how things go. we'll be fixing bug up until beta in early march. so please try it out & file issues so the support will be solid for beta.

thanks for your patience!
