Which TypeScript IDE

The question of which TypeScript IDE to use comes up reasonably often, so here is a quick run-down of my three favourites as of now! You may well prefer another IDE and I’d love to hear about it.

Visual Studio

  • Windows

There should be little surprise that Visual Studio has really superb support for TypeScript. If you are already using Visual Studio it is unlikely that you’ll be looking to edit your TypeScript anywhere else.

Visual Studio Code

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac OSX

Code is a lightweight cross-platform editor from Microsoft. It is early days, but the TypeScript support is exceptional.

Atom

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac OSX

The atom-typescript extension brings all the features of TypeScript to the awesome Atom editor.

WebStorm / PHPStorm

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac OSX

JetBrains have a reasonably priced commercial IDE that support TypeScript. Be prepared for a whole bunch of awesome features.

TypEcs

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac OSX

Axmor have written TypEcs brings, which brings TypeScript support to Eclipse.
