Meteor Typescript Compiler


TypeScript is a statically typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. The language comes with many additions such as classes, scoping, modules and interfaces.

TypeScript is supported on both the client and the server. Files ending with .ts are automatically compiled to JavaScript by this meteor plugin.

See for more information.


  • Run npm install -g typescript, you must be running version 1.4*

  • From your Meteor project, type meteor add meteortypescript:compiler

That's it! From now on, all *.ts files are dynamically compiled into Javascript (client and server).

What's included?

  • Compiler is used for server & client assets using the tsc command.
  • Compilation uses ECMAScript5 generation on the server & ECMAScript3 on the client.
  • Libraries such as meteor.d.ts or node.d.ts are not bundled with the project (ie. ), please grab them from
  • Sample demos built around Meteor+TypeScript can be found in the samples folder.

Using Typescript with Meteor

  • Create a lib folder in your project, add meteor.d.ts or any other ts description files you may be interested in.
  • Refer to the following coding guidelines.
  • When working with an IDE such as WebStorm, be sure to disable typescript generation.
