There's got to be a better way!


Your job is to review the tsc CLI options to determine how to automate the Type

The way it's currently working is we're basically having to every time we make a change inside here, we're having to run TSC in order to get the new JavaScript file out.

00:17 Then we can open it in the browser and check that what we've got is real. So if we say hello world inside here, got to run TSC again, then I go inside here and it says hello world. Great. It would be great if we could automate one of the parts of this, which was running TSC. Your job is to work out if there is a continuous watch mode that we can use with
