[Typescript typings] Create a better version of type definitions

See original GitHub issue


I use the azure-storage library for many projects and I also use typescript in many of these.

The actual typescript definitions (source) are not reliable and are really difficult to maintain.

During my development I always hacked the source declarations and adapted it to my project so I decided to build a new typings project to host a better version of azure-storage-node type definitions.

The project is available at It is built by following the same architecture as the javascript sources and it is tested over the source samples and library tests.

This project can evolve in two way:

  • It can be merged with this repository so maintenance of both javascript and typings can be centralized.
  • It can live as side of this project by removing the actual definitions and add a link in the documentation to explain how to obtain the type definitions for azure-storage module.

What do you think is the better solution ?

Please remove the /typings/node from the repository.

I would suggest adding: "typings": "typings/azure-storage/azure-storage.d.ts" to package.json in order for typescript to find the typings correctly when using node module resolution. @hasonmsft do you agree? I can submit a PR if you want.
