The Missing Bit

Template literals in Typescript
February 17, 2017

It might be common knowledge, but I just discovered that Typescript was supporting JavaScript template literals.

Also called string interpolation sometimes, it let you do something like:

name = "John"
console.log(`Hello ${name}`)

And it will print “Hello John”.

The nice thing about it is that Typescript will generate es5 compatible code (if target is set to es5 in your tsconfig.json ).
