In this post, we’ll walk through how to set up a Svelte project with Typescript. We’ll start by creating a new project, then, we’ll add Typescript support and configure our project to use it.
Svelte and TypeScript
TypeScript can be used with Svelte to provide type checking and tooling support. This can help you catch errors early in the development process, and ensure that your code is as efficient as possible.
Creating a New Project
The first thing we need to do is create a new Svelte project. We can do this using the debit command
npx degit sveltejs/template testApp
This will install all the svelte project template.
Setting up TypeScript
Let’s get started by changing the src/app.svelte file with a code editor in our project.
We will set the use of TypeScript language by changing
Now we will run the
setupTypeScript.js file to start using TypeScript in our application by typing in the terminal:
Reinstall all dependencies with the terminal command:
And we are ready to go!
Start the server
We will use the terminal command
npm run dev
and the server will be accessible from our browser at the specified url
Svelte and typescript are a powerful combination for developing web applications. Svelte provides a way to create efficient, production-ready code, while typescript provides type checking and tooling support. Together, they allow you to catch errors early in the development process, and ensure that your code is as efficient as possible.
