How does TypeScript work?
TypeScript integrates with several JS code editors, such as Visual Studio, Nova, Atom, Sublime Text, Emacs, Vim, WebStorm, and Eclipse. It provides language services that enable type-checking and autocompletion tools in them. Being empowered by TypeScript, code editors analyze code, spot mistakes, and add types available in the open-source library of type declaration files.
