Not so long ago Microsoft announced a new language trageting on front-end developers. Everybody's reaction was like: Why?!! Is it just Microsoft darting back to Google?!
So, why a new language? JavaScript has its bad parts. Mostly you can avoid them or workaraund. You can emulate class-based OOP style, modules, scoping and even run-time typing. But that is doomed to be clumsy. That's not in the language design. Google has pointed out these flaws, provided a new language and failed. Will the story of TypeScript be any different?

TypeScript Introduction

  1. 1. var inx: number = 1, text: string = “Lorem”, isReady: bool = false, arr: string[], obj: ObjInterface = factory.getObj(), mixedVal: any;
  2. 2. var obj: { x: number, y: number }, fn: ( x: number, y?: any ) => number, constr: new() => ObjInterface;
  3. 3. var treatItems = function( arr, callback ) { // do something return arr;};
  4. 4. var treatItems = function( arr: string[], callback: (value: string, inx: number, arr: string[]) => string[]) { // do something return arr;};
  5. 5. var treatItems = function( arr, callback ) { // do something return arr;};
  6. 6. class Mamal{ private nickname: string; constructor( nickname: string = "Noname" ) { this.nickname = nickname; } public getNickname():string { return this.nickname; }}
  7. 7. class Cat extends Mamal{ private family: string = "Felidae"; constructor( nickname: string ) { super( nickname ); } public getFamily():string { return this.family; }}
  8. 8. // Generated JavaScript: helpervar __extends = this.__extends || function (d,b) { function __() { this.constructor = d; } __.prototype = b.prototype; d.prototype = new __();}
  9. 9. // Generated JavaScript: classesvar Mamal = (function () { … })();var Cat = (function (_super) { __extends(Cat, _super); function Cat(nickname) { _super.call(this, nickname); this.family = "Felidae"; } Cat.prototype.getFamily = function () { return this.family; }; return Cat;})(Mamal);
  10. 10. interface Point { x: number; y: number;}function getDistance( pointA: Point, pointB: Point ) { return Math.sqrt( Math.pow( pointB.x - pointA.x, 2 ) + Math.pow( pointB.y - pointA.y, 2 ) );}var result = getDistance( { x: - 2, y: - 3 }, { x: - 4, y: 4 })
  11. 11. interface Mover{ move(): void;}interface Shaker{ shake(): void;}interface MoverShaker extends Mover, Shaker{}
  12. 12. module graphic{ export class Point { x: number; y: number; constructor( x: number = 0, y: number = 0 ) { }; }}var point = new graphic.Point( 10, 10 );
  13. 13. // File main.ts:import log = module ( "log” );log.message( "hello" );// File log.js:export function message(s: string) { console.log(s);}
  14. 14. (x) => { return Math.sin(x); }(x) => Math.sin(x);x => { return Math.sin(x); }x => Math.sin(x);
  15. 15. var messenger = { message: "Hello World", start: function() { setTimeout( () => { alert( this.message ); }, 3000 ); }};messenger.start();
  16. 16. class Shape { ... }class Circle extends Shape { ... }function createShape( kind: string ): Shape { if ( kind === "circle" ) return new Circle(); ...}var circle = <Circle> createShape( "circle" );
  17. 17. interface JQuery{ text(content: string);}interface JQueryStatic { get(url: string, callback: (data: string) => any); (query: string): JQuery;}declare var $: JQueryStatic;
  18. 18. /// <reference path="jquery.d.ts" />module Parallax{ export class ParallaxContainer { private content: HTMLElement; constructor( scrollableContent: HTMLElement ) { $( scrollableContent ).scroll(( event: JQueryEventObject ) => { this.onContainerScroll( event ); }); } private onContainerScroll( e: JQueryEventObject ) : void { // do something }}
