How to create and run TypeScript project

$ mkdir typescript-demo1

$ npm init -y

$ npm install --save-dev typescript @types/node rimraf

$ npx tsc --init --rootDir src --outDir build \
 --esModuleInterop --resolveJsonModule --lib es6 \
 --module commonjs --allowJs true --noImplicitAny true 

$ mkdir src

$ echo "console.log('Hello world');" > src/index.ts

$ npx tsc

$ node dist/index.js
