Introducing TypeScript – Microsoft’s new open source JS language

TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development.TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. Any browser. Any host. Any OS. Open Source.


Starts from JavaScript, Ends with JavaScript

TypeScript starts from the syntax and semantics that millions of JavaScript developers know today. With TypeScript, you can use existing JavaScript code, incorporate popular JavaScript libraries, and be called from other JavaScript code. TypeScript compiles to clean, simple JavaScript code which runs on any browser, in Node.js, or in any other ES3-compatible environment.

With any luck you will be returned to the pristine joy of the out-of-the-box SharePoint Master Page main site settings.
