I was frustrated that the TypeScript plugin was only available for VS2012. I love TypeScript’s syntax and typesafety. I tried using SharpDevelop to make a TypeScript app but its error reporting is terrible. Also, sharp develop doesnt have a solution system where i can work on multiple projects at the same time. My aim is to create a game engine for the web using TypeScript and i think TypeScript is ideal for the job.
Open the installer as an archive and extract the TypeScriptLS.vsix_File and rename it to TypeScriptLS.vsix .
double click on it to install it
If you open visual studio, you’ll see the Typescript Project type. Creating it should give an error about a missing file called Microsoft.typescript.targets. No need to worry, open the installer as an archive with 7-zip again and extract it.
Go in C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v10.0\ and create a folder called TypeScript. Put Microsoft.typescript.targets in there.
Create your TypeScript project now and it will work.
and run it 🙂
