Deprecation Notice: Regarding TypeScript@2.0
For users doing
typings install dt~<package> --global and receiving errors.
Starting from TypeScript 2.0, users can install typings using
npm install @types/<package>. These typings are coming from DefinitelyTyped. In the future, we hope redirects will be enabled to support existing maintainers to contribute effectively to NPM's
@types as they did to
Typings on DefinitelyTyped have also moved to the external module format supported by TypeScript. This finally solved the real problem that Typings was trying to solve! It also means it will cause errors such as:
> typings install dt~angular --global typings ERR! message Attempted to compile "angular" as a global module, but it looks like an external module. You'll need to remove the global option to continue.
To resolve this, we recommend moving to TypeScript 2.0's official aquisition method (
npm install @types/angular). You can also drop the
--global flag from
typings, though some definitions on DefinitelyTyped may not work with the Typings approach because of new TypeScript features (namely UMD namespaces).
This project will remain operational for the foreseeable future, but is effectively deprecated. New projects should use
@types from NPM.
# Install Typings CLI utility. npm install typings --global # Search for definitions. typings search tape # Find a definition by name. typings search --name react # If you use the package as a module: # Install non-global typings (defaults to "npm" source, configurable through `defaultSource` in `.typingsrc`). typings install debug --save # If you use the package through `<script>`, it is part of the environment, or # the module typings are not yet available, try searching and installing with `--global`: typings install dt~mocha --global --save # If you need a specific commit from github. typings install d3=github:DefinitelyTyped/DefinitelyTyped/d3/d3.d.ts#1c05872e7811235f43780b8b596bfd26fe8e7760 --global --save # Search and install by version. typings info env~node --versions typings install email@example.com --global --save # Install typings from a particular source (use `<source>~<name>` or `--source <source>`). typings install env~atom --global --save typings install bluebird --source npm --save # Use `typings/index.d.ts` (in `tsconfig.json` or as a `///` reference). cat typings/index.d.ts
Typings is the simple way to manage and install TypeScript definitions. It uses
typings.json, which can resolve to the Typings Registry, GitHub, NPM, Bower, HTTP and local files. Packages can use type definitions from various sources and different versions, knowing they will never conflict for users.
