Mastering TypeScript 3 - Third Edition

Overview of this book

TypeScript is both a language and a set of tools to generate JavaScript. It was designed by Anders Hejlsberg at Microsoft to help developers write enterprise-scale JavaScript. Starting with an introduction to the TypeScript language, before moving on to basic concepts, each section builds on previous knowledge in an incremental and easy-to-understand way. Advanced and powerful language features are all covered, including asynchronous programming techniques, decorators, and generics. This book explores many modern JavaScript and TypeScript frameworks side by side in order for the reader to learn their respective strengths and weaknesses. It will also thoroughly explore unit and integration testing for each framework. Best-of-breed applications utilize well-known design patterns in order to be scalable, maintainable, and testable. This book explores some of these object-oriented techniques and patterns, and shows real-world implementations. By the end of the book, you will have built a comprehensive, end-to-end web application to show how TypeScript language features, design patterns, and industry best practices can be brought together in a real-world scenario.

Our application will be a simple one, called Board Sales, which will list a range of windsurfing boards on the main page, and then allow the user to view details of any one of the boards on sale by clicking on it. Clicking on a particular board will slide the board detail panel in from the right-hand side. We will also use the left-hand side navigation panel to provide the user with options to filter the Board List. If a user clicks on a particular filter, then the range of boards shown will be filtered to match this selection. The main page will be as follows:

Here, we can see that we have a top navigation bar, a side-navigation panel on the left-hand side showing filter options, and a main panel with a series of boards displayed.

Modern windsurfing boards come in a range of sizes, and are measured by volume. As we can see in the board list view, each...
