TypeScript Support?

Postby goldcougar » Sat Jan 07, 2017 11:17 pm

I see that TypeScript is supported for building web components. Is it on the roadmap to have TypeScript support built into Servoy for standard development of the normal business logic?

For the uninitiated, TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript. It allows for having proper variable types and many other object oriented concepts in a clean way.

its not really on a roadmap, but we did think about it.

The problem is that there are some big hurdles to go over then, the first one is completion and validation of code, we need somehow to feed into the system the full SOM model including all the constant changing dynamic parts..
second is debugging because what you are debugging is the generated js code that can be quite a bit different then the type script that you are typing, so we need to have source map support and so on in the rhino debugger.

that is something we could do but it doesn't gain us much. its not that we then have ecma6 support.

Makes sense. Sort of figured as much.
