TypeScript in SharePoint Add-In not generating .js file

2 september 2015

I wanted to use TypeScript in an existing SharePoint Add-In build with Visual Studio 2013.
So the first thing I did was add the TypeScript Add-In for Visual Studio.

Then I added a TypeScript file to my project.
I expected Visual Studio to generate my .js file, but it didn't.

This was because something was missing from the project file.

<Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath32)\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v$(VisualStudioVersion)\TypeScript\Microsoft.TypeScript.targets" />

After adding the piece of XML above to my project file my .js file was generated.
