TypeScript Question

DefinitelyTyped vs typings - comparison

Could someone clearly state the differences between

DefinitelyTyped
and
typings
? Both provide TS definitions for existing JS libraries, but I'm unsure about the differences.

Answer

As Mike said, typings is a utility used to pull in type definitions (the d.ts files). DefinitelyTyped is a repository for those typings, along with NPM and these other repositories/sources.
