TypeScript, Visual Studio, Windows Store apps

Store app Typescript Project Template

Recently I’ve been writing Windows Store apps using TypeScript. Because TypeScript compiles to JavaScript this can be done without any problems. The hardest part at the moment is getting the project up and running. One of the things is that there’s no official Project Template to start a new project. So I made one myself. Feel free to use it and if you run into any issues please let me know.

You can download the template here or get it from GitHub.

To use it, first extract the file in the ProjectTemplates folder of Visual Studio 2013. You can find this folder here:
  %userprofile%\documents\Visual Studio 2013\Templates\ProjectTemplates\TypeScript\Windows Store

And that’s it. Just start or restart Visual Studio and you can use the template. You can find the template under the TypeScript / Windows Store section, which may be hidden in the Other Languages category.


If you have any questions about the template let me know. You may want to subscribe to the RSS feed or my Twitter to stay up to date on other tutorials or articles.
