#SharePoint TypeScript TypeScript declarations for SharePoint JavaScript Object Model (JSOM) + lots of samples.

##Getting started Install NuGet package using package manager

PM> Install-Package sharepoint.TypeScript.DefinitelyTyped

or from npm @types

npm install @types/sharepoint --save

If you are using Visual Studio SharePoint projects you need to enable TypeScript build actions:

  1. Edit csproj source file (right-click on your project in VS -> Unload project, right click again -> Edit YourProject.csproj)
  2. Include the following code:
<Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath32)\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v$(VisualStudioVersion)\TypeScript\Microsoft.TypeScript.targets" />
  1. Reload project
  2. Don't forget to set "Deployment Type" to "No Deployment" for .d.ts files


TypeScript Templates is a set of Client-Side Rendering (CSR) templates and helper functions to change behaviour of standard forms. Install using NuGet

PM> Install-Package typescripttemplates

or using bower

bower install typescripttemplates --save
