Even if your application not uses TypeScript at all, you can use the type definition files for autocompletion and documentation purposes. More details here.

If you are working with Typescript, you can install it as a npm package.
In order for TypeScript to perform the type checking, the types need to be defined somewhere. It's pretty straightforward how to add type definitions to the variables declared in your own code:
// anyObject hold values of any arbitrary type var anyObject: any; // count is a number var count: number; // regexPatterns is an array of regular expressions var regexPatterns: RegExp; // reverse is a function which accepts and returns a string var reverse: (input: string) => string;

Using types for games events
To make your lives easier when working with our games events API, We've expanded our library with typedef files for the different in-game events. We added Type definition files for each game, for autocompletion and documentation purposes.
You can find the game's events definition files under the same repo and npm package above, under the GEP folder.
VS will then include the found types in its auto-completion list, given that you've got TypeScript installed.
