Nuget Packages for Typescript Definition Files

If you have been using TypeScript you should be aware the definition file repository maintained by Boris Yankov called DefinitelyTyped.  This repository is awesome because it saves so much time and effort when working with 3rd party libraries with Typescript.

However, as great as this repository is it has always been painful getting the actual d.ts files for each library.  You would have to go to the site, navigate to the file, save the file and add it to your solution…. this sucked. 

If only there was a tool to help automate this?  Oh wait there is, it is called Nuget

I got the bright idea to start creating some Nuget packages around the d.ts files I am using so I posted them here.  The only problem with this is I was only creating the packages I cared about but more importantly I was creating these by hand and that is time consuming and I am lazy.

But yesterday I received some awesome news from Jason Jarret (aka @staxmanade) on twitter as seen below

This is awesome news.  Now all the d.ts files hosted in the DefinitelyTyped repository now have Nuget pacakges… w00t!

To see the list of Nuget packages follow this link.

Awesome work Jason,

Till Next Time,

P.S. I will be taking my nuget packages offline very shortly as they should not be used anymore.
