Using Typescript for an NPM Module

This is a useful article on building an NPM Module using typescript.

I am using the technique here to move lie.js to typescript.

The documentation is now a little old. Have a look at github.com/chriseyre2000/lie.js for a more recent version.

The practical advantage of moving to Typescript are the type definitions which the IDE can choose to use even if the module is used from a Javascript app.

Also note that I have CircleCI setup to publish to NPM upon receipt of a tag.

This is how to push tags to github:

git tag -a v1.1.4 -m "my version 1.1.4"
git push origin --tags
