Will nodeJs ever have out of the box typescript support?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/node

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Klotho - AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • proposal-type-annotations

    ECMAScript proposal for type syntax that is erased - Stage 1

    Support for types in JavaScript itself - There is an official proposal for this with backing. There seems to be a significant desire for this, particular in the enterprise. Microsoft have designed TypeScript in such a way that it can eventually become native JavaScript and are backing that approach.

  • node

    Node.js JavaScript runtime :sparkles::turtle::rocket::sparkles:

    Support TypeScript directly - There are numerous issues about this, but the node project overall doesn't seem interested (as it's so easy to just use tsc, node-tsc, or tsx instead - so a fair bit of work for very little gain).

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • deno

    A modern runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript.

    Have you seen Deno? It's a Nodejs alternative with out of the box typescript support.

  • tsx

    ⚡️ TypeScript Execute (tsx): Node.js enhanced with esbuild to run TypeScript & ESM

    try tsx. it has support for watch mode and works great with esm module projects.
