Hi, I try to use TypeScript as scripting lang in Defold. A made some tests and it works!. Basic idea - Transpile TypeScript to Lua.
As benefits we have TypeScript and VSCode with incredible TS support. TS is very popular in web development now and TS support in Defold make it best web game engine for many people who already known TS.
It’s early version with very basic functionally (currenly have only functions for example projects) but it works. A lot to do. Use an example project for basic tests. Do not hesitate to contribute!
