As I was going through my Twitter feed earlier this evening, a tweet from one of my followers/someone I follow popped up.
Just update your bookmark to the better playground here 😉 https://t.co/STFVHK8lOQ— Steven (@styfle) February 26, 2019
I was like, hey, that looks pretty cool. So I asked Steven if he had created it, to which he replied.
Neither! It was created by Agent Cooper awhile ago and offered to replace the official one of the TS team was willing https://t.co/nJPXQmCb7Q— Steven (@styfle) February 26, 2019
In a nutshell, typescript-play is like the official TypeScript playground but with some great enhancements:
- All strict options turned on by default
- More available compiler options
- Ability to switch TypeScript version
- More space for code
- More examples
- Quicker sharing, URL updates as you type
- Shorter sharing URLs
What's even cooler is the fact that it's open sourced, https://github.com/agentcooper/typescript-play, so you can deploy it locally.
If you don't feel like cloning it, check it out at typescript-play.js.org.
