How to write a Typescript plugin?

Are there any docs / examples of writing a Typescript plugin?




For the last time I am very inspired with the idea of bringing Typescript into my projects. However, currently I see this is not possible because of my failed attempts to find any docs about writing a Typescript plugin. I need this plugin for combining classes metadata during compilation and then generating an asset. It was not that easy but I've already written such for babel and now I am interested if it is possible to do the same with Typescript.

Answer

You can download https://github.com/microsoft/typescript or via npm.

npm install typescript

Then include it into your project and via Compiler API or TypeScript Language Service work with TypeScripts codes. You can write your own compiler if you need. Basics are described on the wiki.
