*DEPRECATED* The TypeScript Definition Manager
The TypeScript Definition Manager.
For users doing
typings install dt~ --globaland receiving errors.
Starting from TypeScript 2.0, users can install typings using
npm install @types/. These typings are coming from DefinitelyTyped. In the future, we hope redirects will be enabled to support existing maintainers to contribute effectively to NPM's
@typesas they did to
Typings on DefinitelyTyped have also moved to the external module format supported by TypeScript. This finally solved the real problem that Typings was trying to solve! It also means it will cause errors such as:
> typings install dt~angular --global
typings ERR! message Attempted to compile "angular" as a global module, but it looks like an external module. You'll need to remove the global option to continue.
To resolve this, we recommend moving to TypeScript 2.0's official aquisition method (
npm install @types/angular). You can also drop the
typings, though some definitions on DefinitelyTyped may not work with the Typings approach because of new TypeScript features (namely UMD namespaces).
This project will remain operational for the foreseeable future, but is effectively deprecated. New projects should use

Search for definitions.

If you use the package as a module:
Install non-global typings (defaults to "npm" source, configurable through
typings install debug --save
If you use the package through
<script>, it is part of the environment, or
the module typings are not yet available, try searching and installing with
typings install dt~mocha --global --save
If you need a specific commit from github.

Typings is the simple way to manage and install TypeScript definitions. It uses
typings.json, which can resolve to the Typings Registry, GitHub, NPM, Bower, HTTP and local files. Packages can use type definitions from various sources and different versions, knowing they will never conflict for users.
