Module Development in TypeScript
Jalibu Module Developer last edited by Jalibu
some time ago I switched all my modules to TypeScript (feel free to check out MMM-Jast as a reference implementations).
Especially for more complex modules, TypeScript brings huge advantages from my point of view.
Since the MagicMirror platform doesn’t provide its own TypeDefinitions, I made them available via the DefinitelyTyped library.
For interested developers I also plan to provide some kind of TypeScript template module soon.
. ├── src │ └── backend │ ├── Backend.ts │ ├── BackendUtils.ts │ └── ... │ └── frontend │ ├── Frontend.ts │ ├── FrontendUtils.ts │ └── ... │ └── types │ ├── ABC.ts │ └── ... └── templates │ ├── main.njk │ └── ... └── translations │ ├── de.json │ ├── en.json │ └── ... └── MMM-XYZ.js (generated) └── node_helper.js (generated) └── MMM-XYZ.css └── tsconfig.json └── rollup.config.json └── README.md └── package.json
Question: Are there any other developers among you who are interested in joining my “TypeScript” initiative? A little support from another developer in maintaining the type definitions would be helpful.

@jalibu there is a simple version of types in the main repo https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/blob/master/module-types.ts

as you say, it is a very simple and incomplete version. And you can not install them as a package or use them in your modules, except if you copy the file.
In fact, that’s the real reason I created the typings on DefinitelyTyped.
You can find the sources here and the npm module here.
