TypeScript For Umbraco

This package integrates TypeScript into Umbraco so you can write full OOP TypeScript objects and compile them to Javascript straight to your scripts folder... without ever leaving Umbraco!  No need for VS 2012 plugins or custom setup for VS 2010.

What is TypeScript?

TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development.  TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.  It provides static typing, classes, interfaces and inheritance. TypeScript can be used for cross-browser development and is an open source project (just like Umbraco!).  And if you're a C# developer like me, I'm sure you'll see the beauty of it when developing applications that would benefit from OOP client side.

Here is an example:

module Company {
    export class AccountManager {        firstName: string;        surname: string;        clients: Client[];        constructor (firstName: string, surname: string) {
            this.firstName = firstName;
            this.surname = surname;
        }        addClient(client: Client) {            this.clients.push(client);        }    }

    export class Client{        name: string    }
}//NOW USE IT!//note: I am not an account manager! :-)var accountManager = new Company.AccountManager("Craig", "Noble");var client = new Company.Client();client.name = "Somebody";accountManager.addClient(client);

[note: I have not tested the above code but it's an example off the top of my head!]

Version update 1.1 - Now compatible with Umbraco versions 4.9.x, 4.10.x, 4.11.x, and 6!  Fixed a compiler issue which required a DLL (it didn't need it) and when creating TypeScript files.
