typescript-brunch

typescript-brunch Build Status

Adds TypeScript support to Brunch.

Usage

Install the plugin via NPM with npm install --save-dev typescript-brunch.

Or, do manual install:

  • Add "typescript-brunch": "x.y" to package.json of your brunch app. Pick a plugin version that corresponds to your major.minor (x.y) Brunch version.
  • If you want to use git version of plugin, add "typescript-brunch": "github:brunch/typescript-brunch".

brunch-config

If there is a tsconfig.json file present in the root of your project, the compilerOptions from that will be used as defaults.

Any options in your brunch-config.js or brunch-config.coffee will override those.

module.exports = {
  // ... 
  plugins: {
    brunchTypescript: {
      removeComments: true
    }
  }
};

If no options are provided, this plugin will default to the following:

{
  target: "es5",
  module: "commonjs",
  emitDecoratorMetadata: true,
  experimentalDecorators: true
}

Errors

From version 1.8.2 up to current version, this plugin may report TypeScript errors that you are not expecting. This is due to the fact that this plugin compiles each file separately in isolation, and doesn't take advantage of the full TypeScript project. As such there are some errors which may appear which are false positives.

Starting in 1.8.3 you could add an ignoreErrors property the plugin config object in the brunch-config file. This was an array of error numbers to ignore. Starting in 2.0.1, you can ignore all TypeScript errors by setting ignoreErrors to true (this was broken in 2.0.0). Setting it to an array still works as before.

We are hoping to support the full language service, at least for brunch build at some point, but until then, we recommend that you add tsc --noEmit to your test script or build script to catch proper errors within your project.

Just to note that this shouldn't affect any TypeScript support your editor/IDE provides, which should also allow you to identify real errors.
