typescript compiler for component
wherever you have a component.json enter
component tsc command and all your typescript files will be compiled.
component-tsc will compile all files with a ".ts" extension located below the path of your component's main.
if your component exposes its definition file using a "typescript" field in its component.json then component-tsc will automatically generate that external definition file for your component.
if any of the component's dependencies expose their typescript definition file in component.json then these will be automatically referenced and placed in a file called _dependencies.d.ts alongside the main file of your component.
component tsc --install will also install the dependencies.
