Aurelia has a getting started guide which covers using TypeScript and VS2015. I’ve downloaded the TypeScript Kit, and opened it as a website in VS2015. I can view
index.html in a browser. However, when I edit
app.ts, I don’t see my changes when I reload
index.html. I use VS2015 Community Edition with update 2. TypeScript is installed.
I’m missing something basic about how VS compiles TS into JS.
The JS console contains debug statements about several Aurelia plugins being loaded and configured. It then reports that Aurelia has started. Lastly, it says that resources are imported for
app.html. I see no errors in the console.
As @qtuan suggested, the problem was that the page was being cached. I initially thought this, and did Ctrl-F5 in Chrome on Windows to reload the page without using the cache. For some reason, this did not behave as expected and I saw the original page. When I ticked “Disable cache” in Chrome’s Dev Toosl, under Network, then the page refreshed as expected.
