Project Description

In January, we announced the D-Installer project, an attempt to build a web-based installer on top of YaST and Cockpit. Since then, the codebase has grown significantly, especially the JavaScript part.

Until now, we have been using simple JavaScript objects and functions most of the time. However, let's be honest, tooling support (editors, documentation generation tools, etc.) for such an approach is not great. Additionally, having some typing would be easier to deal with the code. So we have decided to try TypeScript.

Goal for this Hackweek

  • Learn some TypeScript.
  • Adopt Typescript where it makes sense (especially the D-Bus clients).

Resources

      For this Hack Week, we decided to work on Finish the Jangouts rewrite on React/Redux instead. However, as part of that work, we played around with TypeScript and we concluded that it might be pretty interesting to bring it to D-Installer as well.
