TypeScript for Node.js Develpment

This project contains the presentation and sample code for my "TypeScript for Node.js" session at Connect.Tech.

To get full details, including a related video walk through and description of the presentation, read the TypeScript for Node.js blog post.

Run the Presentation or view it as a PDF.


The Examples folder contains a simple project to illustrate various TypeScript features. The examples are best viewed from an IDE like Visual Studio Code for development-time feedback. You can:

npm run-script tsc builds JavaScript files from the examples.

node 001-types runs the first example.

npm run-script tsc:w builds and watches, useful for commenting/uncommenting code to walk through the example.

npm run-script tsc:es6 builds for ECMAScript 2015 to illustrate differences in output despite the same TypeScript source.


This is a very simple project to show basic setup for Node.js development.

npm run-script build to build it.

node lib/main to run it. You should see some colorful cats.


Snippets to build yourself

Copy the TypeScript-NodeJs-Snippets folder and paste it into the Visual Studio Code Extensions folder to install the JavaScript snippets for this demo. Depending on your platform it is located:

  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\.vscode\extensions
  • Mac: $HOME/.vscode/extensions
  • Linux: $HOME/.vscode/extensions
You can’t perform that action at this time.
