TypeScript: Setting Up and Settling In...

Recently we’ve been considering the move to something better than JavaScript for front-end development, offering type safety and organisational constructs that more readily support robust code.

I spent a week exploring TypeScript (a typed ‘superset’ of JavaScript) as a candidate in Visual Studio 2015. Here are the issues and fixes I encountered along the way, relating to initial setup, libraries, unanticipated runtime/compile-time behaviour, and general comments (focusing on issues that are not obvious from TypeScript documentation).
