language-typescript. Both are very similar and are basically
Microsoft's TextMate grammar repackaged, and there's little reason to
bundle our own if there's one available by default.
NOTE: This branch contains a major rewrite (v11) of the
atom-typescript plugin that is lighter and faster, but lacks a few
major features that you might miss. The previous version is still
available in the
legacy branch and will continue to receive minor
bugfixes, but I wouldn't count on any new developments.
- Install atom.
- Install dependencies (see below)
apm install atom-typescript(
gitin your path)
- Fire up atom. Open a TypeScript file.
Atom-TypeScript relies on some external packages for providing some of its GUI. You basically have two options.
Option 1: Install
Option 2: Install the following packages:
Additional Notes: Some packages we love.
"I was shocked at how good it felt to poke around on the compiler with
it." Jonathan Turner "And guess what, it
worked perfectly. Like everything else! Faster than Visual Studio!"
a thing of beauty - they had me at 'Type information on hover'.
tsconfig.json support as well was just an enormous bonus."
John Reilly "This may be your best
option for editing TypeScript at the moment - very nice!" Rasmus

Internally using AutoComplete+. Just start typing and hints will show

tab to make a selection.

Compile on save
"compileOnSave": true is set in
tsconfig.json, TypeScript files
will be compiled and saved automatically. The compiler does its best to
emit something, even if there are semantic errors in the file.
atom-typescript supports all the same options the TypeScript compiler
does as it's using it behind the scenes to do all of the heavy lifting.
atom-typescript will use the exact version of TypeScript you
have installed in your

unsuitable for TypeScript. Hence, we provide two commands to emulate
