As discussed with Simon Hausmann in the Qt Contributor Summit, this is a request to add functionality to Qt Quick (QML) and to Qt Creator to use separate TypeScript (TS) files as resources (instead of JS). Please note that this is not about extending QML itself to be statically typed as described in QTBUG-68791. It's just about including *.ts files into QML.
In a first step, this would require to use TS files for build and execution:
- being able to import *.ts files in QML files
- executing the TS compiler as part of the build process
- picking up the resulting *.js file as part of the run-time resources
In a second step, it would be very convenient to provide first-class support for TS files in the Qt Creator, to edit them and and to debug them. This means that Qt Creator would have to know how to use source maps.
