Typescript with Play Framework

Because types are cool…

It seems weird that coffeescript is in all the demos for a company recently known as typesafe. I use Typescript on the frontend where possible.

sbt-typescript was maintained in two projects ArpNetworking/sbt-typescript and joost-de-vries/sbt-typescript. But neither has been updated in a long time.

I have forked and updated to the latest Typescript 3+. If you want all the niceness of types on your frontend code when using Play Framework, check out:


addSbtPlugin("com.github.platypii" % "sbt-typescript" % "3.7.5")
