IntelliJ IDEA supports developing and running TypeScript source code.
IntelliJ IDEA recognizes
*.ts files, and allows you to edit them providing full range of coding assistance without any additional steps from your side.
TypeScript files are marked with the icon.

- Error and syntax highlighting.
- Code formatting and folding.
- Numerous code inspections and quick-fixes.
- Common refactoring procedures, such as extract method , inline, rename/move, etc.
