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
  • Mac

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

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

Atom

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac

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

WebStorm / PHPStorm

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac

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