  • MonoDevelop 5.0 or Xamarin Studio 5.0


The addin is available from the MonoDevelop addin repository. To install the addin:

  • Open the Add-in Manager dialog.
  • Select the Gallery tab.
  • Select Xamarin Studio Add-in Repository (Alpha channel) from the drop down list.
  • Expand Web Development.
  • Select TypeScript.
  • Click the Refresh button if the addin is not visible.

  1. TypeScript - The TypeScript language services are used to provide code completion.
  2. V8.NET - A library that hosts Google's V8 JavaScript engine and allows .NET objects to be used directly from JavaScript.
  3. Json.NET - Json library for .NET created by James Newton-King.

How it works

The addin glues together the TypeScript language services and MonoDevelop using V8.NET as the bridge between them. JavaScript code is executed by V8 and uses the TypeScript language services to get information about the TypeScript files in the project. This information is delivered to the C# host class which interacts with MonoDevelop.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
