Meteor typescript compiler plugin package.
Depends on https://github.com/Meteor-Community-Packages/meteor-typescript-compiler for the bulk of the implementation.
This project is just a small wrapper to install the compiler as a Meteor plugin.
This plugin is based on the incremental compilation support released in Typescript 3.6 and works like a dropin replacement to the old barbatus:typescript package and its forks.
Some main attributes:
- Outputs type compilation errors as part of the build process and will fail if a file could not be transpiled to js.
- Uses settings in tsconfig.json (overrides a few, like "incremental")
TYPESCRIPT_FAIL_ON_COMPILATION_ERRORS environment variable is set to a value other than 0 or false, compilation errors
you probably want to enable in ci build environments only.
For convenience and to allow e.g. faster production builds without modifying your tsconfig.json file,
you can override the sourceMap setting via the
TYPESCRIPT_SOURCEMAP environment variable.
Set it to
false to disable source map generation and any other non-empty string value to enable them.
How to install and use
# meteor remove typescript # (if needed) # meteor add refapp:meteor-typescript
To get advantage of cached files on a build server, ensure that you save and restore the content of the .meteor/local/plugin-cache directory between builds.
How to test using the provided test application (requires a system with proper symlink support)
git clone email@example.com:ref-app/meteor-typescript.git git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:ref-app/meteor-typescript-compiler.git cd meteor-typescript/tests/small-typescript-app/ meteor npm install meteor run
This builds the two packages and uses them to try to compile the small example app.
