Using TypeScript with Visual Studio Code on OSX

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Introduction Visual Studio Code is powerful IDE that Microsoft released at Build 2015. There have been several questions regarding how to setup TypeScript with Visual Studio Code on OSX. I decided that I’d stop for a second and make a quick post showing you exactly how to do it. Install TypeScript first From your terminal, enter the following :
npm install -g typescript
You should see the following in your terminal window after running the command :
$ npm install -g typescript /usr/local/bin/tsc -> /usr/local/lib/node_modules/typescript/bin/tsc /usr/local/bin/tsserver -> /usr/local/lib/node_modules/typescript/bin/tsserver typescript@1.5.0-beta /usr/local/lib/node_modules/typescript
Notice that it installed typescript 1.5.0-beta. This is required for Visual Studio Code. Switch
Back to Visual Studio Code Create a New Project and create a new file called tsconfig.json.
{ "compilerOptions": { "target": "ES5", "module": "amd", "sourceMap": true } }
Note: By default the target is ES3. I changed mine to ES5, which Visual Studio Code supports, but it also supports ES6 (experimental). Build the Project If you press CMD-Shift-B, then it will ask you to configure the Task Runner. You will now have a file called tasks.json. Make sure it looks like the following:
{ "version": "0.1.0", // The command is tsc. "command": "tsc", // Show the output window only if unrecognized errors occur. "showOutput": "silent", // Under windows use tsc.exe. This ensures we don't...(Read whole news on source site)

I have the pleasure to announce that I will be speaking next Saturday, May 30th, in the Porto Tech Hub event!The sad part is, I will be replacing my friend Roberto Cortez (@radcortez), of Java fame, who can’t make it. Anyway, the topic will be Open Source @ Microsoft and I hope to see you all there! Thanks to the organization, namely, to my friend and colleague Luís Ribeiro (@luisafonso) for the invitation, and I hope I am up to it!

NTK 2015: Slides from my intro talk on IoT and “Smart Home”

First of all, I’d like to thank everybody who attended my introductory talk at this year’s NT Konferenca (celebrating 20th anniversary this year – and back to Portorož venue). I’ve talked about my smart home wiring and how I’m able to manage it from inside and outside my home network using my Windows Phone and Surface 2 RT. How various sensors and switches are connected to the main bus and are communicating with the actuators that control the lights, outlets, valves, blinds, etc. How little & cheap devices can help us connect our home devices to the Internet.
[Very early
version of my Windows app, running on Surface 2 RT provides me a dashboard to monitor AND control my home] My talk also aimed to feature a very simplified version of the above app (with simulating sensors instead of reading actual values) running on the Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately, due to the lack of HDMI->VGA adapters, I couldn’t show actual UI from Pi’s video output, but the app worked flawlessly otherwise (with Visual Studio 2015 debugger attached to the app running on the Pi). Problems aside, we were able to monitor faked sensor data that was sent by the...(Read whole news on source site)
