Generator to start with TypeScript


First, install Yeoman and generator-ts using npm (we assume you have pre-installed node.js).

npm install -g yo
npm install -g generator-ts

Then generate your new project:

yo ts


All commands are npm tasks in package.json:

  • npm run test -> execute tests with Karma + Coverage + PhantomJS
  • npm run live -> show app with livereload thank to live-server
  • npm run pro -> prepare app for production in dist folder
  • npm run clean -> delete build folder
  • npm run compile -> compile TypeScript to JavaScript
  • npm run compile-w -> compile TypeScript to JavaScript when files change
  • npm run lint -> show syntax error when files change
  • npm run plato -> execute complexity analysis with plato in report folder
