Discussion on: TypeScript and why you should type your JS project

I really like JSDoc! I've used TypeScript for a few libraries but for projects that don't need a build step, it's so simple to just edit your source from the browser devtools source panel.

You can still check your project "compiles" by running the typescript compiler over our JS source by adding tsc -p jsconfig.json to your package.json like this. Here's my jsconfig.json -- the commented out rules fail now but it's on my backlog to clean up the code.
