ts2pas

ts2pas

A tool to convert TypeScript definition files to DWScript based Object Pascal headers. A lot of TypeScript definitions can be found at Definitely Typed.

The Object Pascal output can be used in DWScript based compilers as can be found in Smart Mobile Studio or the DWSWebServer.

At the moment the tool is not ready for productional use. Moreover, the produced output often has to be post processed manually in order to have the proper order of classes for example (and eventually to provide some forward definitions).

Installation

npm install -g ts2pas

Usage

ts2pas inputfile.d.ts [outputfile.pas]
