TypeScript and Electron The Right Way

I’ve been working on a new project over the last weeks that involves getting TypeScript and Electron working together.  Unfortunately, the amount of information available on how to do this correctly is pathetically none existent.

That isn’t to say there aren’t sites that don’t try.  But in the end, all they show you is how to write essentially the same JavaScript code you would have written using JavaScript with a little bit of type information thrown in.  What I was looking for was something a little more object oriented.  Let’s use ALL of TypeScript.

And then there is the whole setup of TypeScript in Node thing.  This was mostly my not knowing my editor well.  But while we are documenting how to get a TypeScript/Electron app setup, let’s cover that as well.
