Building Your TypeScript Project
Building a TypeScript project is straightforward. In this section, we’ll cover the core ideas you’ll need to understand in order to build your project for whatever environment you plan to run it in.
I suggest keeping your source TypeScript code in a top-level src/ folder, and compiling it to a top-level dist/ folder. This folder structure is a popular convention, and splitting your source code and generated code into two top-level folders can make your life easier down the line, when you’re integrating with other tooling. It also makes it easier to exclude generated artifacts from source control.
Try to stick to this convention when you can:
my-app/ ├──dist/ │ ├──index.d.ts │ ├──index.js │ └──services/ │ ├──foo.d.ts │ ├──foo.js ...
