Power TypeScript packages and reduce your config overhead

What is ts-engine?

Write TypeScript packages with optionally zero configuration. Build, lint, start, test and typecheck without any configuration. Whilst ts-engine works out the box without any configuration it is open to extension. You can provide custom Babel, ESLint and Jest configuration.

Quicker to setup

Install a single dependency for build, lint, test and typechecking support so you have more time to focus on writing code that matters.

Reduced configuration

Works without any configuration files. You can optionally extend or provide your own Babel and ESLint and Jest config.

React support

React is supported out the box providing build support aswell as powerful linting including accessibility linting via a11y.

Productive local development

Build and run Node.js applications with the ts-engine start command.

  • Watch mode via --watch option
  • User friendly error display
  • Forward arguments to the application via --args option
