Better Typescript

Overview

This plugin is deprecated. Use Official Type​Script plugin instead..

Description

This is fork of Better CoffeeScript but adopted for work with Typescript. Also look at this TypeScript plugin for Sublime Text https://github.com/Railk/T3S. It is really awesome.

Installation

If you have Sublime Package Control, you know what to do. If not, well: it's a package manager for Sublime Text 3; it's awesome and you can read about it here. Installation guide can be found here.

  • Open the Command Pallete (ctrl+shift+P or cmd+shift+P).
  • Type "Install Package" and hit return.
  • Type "Better TypeScript" and hit return.

Build File Example

Current package don't have sublime build file. You can create it by yourself and save it (Preferences - Browse Packages... - User folder) as Typescript.sublime-build. Then use Cmd + B to build your file.

{
    "cmd": ["tsc", "-d", "-m", "amd", "--sourcemap", "$file"],
    "file_regex": "(.*\\.ts?)\\s\\(([0-9]+)\\,([0-9]+)\\)\\:\\s(...*?)$",
    "selector": "source.ts",
    "osx": {
       "path": "/usr/local/bin:/opt/local/bin"
    },
    "windows": {
        "cmd": ["tsc.cmd", "-d", "-m", "amd", "--sourcemap", "$file"]
    }
}

Commands/Shortcuts

You can access the commands either using the command palette (ctrl+shift+P or cmd+shift+P) or via shortcuts.

alt+shift+s - Run a syntax check
alt+shift+c - Compile a file
alt+shift+d - Display compiled JavaScript
alt+shift+w - Toggle watch mode

Context menu has Compile Output that compiles the current TypeScript and outputs the javascript code that is run, in a panel.

Note: Some of the commands use the Status Bar for output, so you'll probably want to enable it (View » Show Status Bar).

Snippets

  • Use TAB to run a snippet after typing the trigger.
  • Use TAB and shift+TAB to cycle forward/backward through fields.
  • Use ESC to exit snippet mode.

FAQ

Most of the linux terminal commands written here can be run via cygwin - aka Linux Terminal in Windows.

  • Most of the problems are related to configurations. Remember to configure binDir after you install!

  • Do I have tsc installed?

Try finding tsc in your global npm list with npm ls -g | grep tsc which will output something like:

npm ls -g | grep tsc
  • Where can I find out the path to tsc binary?

In Linux which command will tell you where a command originates from. In terminal type:

which tsc
# /usr/bin/tsc

This path will go into the binDir setting.
