The AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) CLI announces a public preview of TypeScript native support. The SAM CLI is a developer tool that is designed to initialize and configure serverless applications, build and test locally and on the AWS cloud, and deploy using AWS CloudFormation. SAM CLI’s build, test and deploy features can also be used from IDEs like Visual Studio Code, JetBrains or WebStorm.

SAM CLI’s TypeScript native support can help TypeScript developers build and package serverless applications with esbuild, rapidly iterate using SAM Accelerate, and deploy serverless TypeScript projects using SAM CLI commands.

To learn more about the SAM CLI’s TypeScript native support, see the announcement blog post. To install the latest version of the SAM CLI, please refer to the installation section of the AWS SAM page.
