Using TypeScript

Architect and TypeScript work great together. Types are available in the @types/architect__functions package. Write functions in TypeScript and just be sure to build your functions with TypeScript (tsc) before running or deploying. For example, your package.json might have the following scripts to build the TypeScript code before deploying and running in the sandbox for local development:

"scripts": {
  "start": "arc sandbox",
  "prestart": "npm run build",
  "deploy": "arc deploy",
  "predeploy": "npm run build",
  "build": "tsc"
}
