How to setup your environment to write Typescript client applications

2016, Aug 22    

Hi all! This time I thought it could be useful to write down a couple of notes about how to setup your development environment ( in my case the wonderful Visual Studio Code on Mac ) and start writing Typescript applications.
To be honest I am writing this only because my memory is becoming sloppy and I am getting lazier day after day 😀

I created a repo on GitHub with the list of steps to perform and an example project.

In a nutshell you have to:
1) create the project folder
2) install a bunch of npm packages globally and locally
3) initialize your project with npm init
4) start coding 🙂

You will find all the details in the Readme.md.

At the end of the process your dev environment will be configured to watch the /src/ folder for changes on .ts files, transpile them into Javascript and run a small web server.

Enjoy!
