Tutorial not working in visual studio 2015

Running the following command to start the ionic 2 tutorial.

ionic start MyApp tutorial --v2

I pull that project into visual studio 2015 using New Project form existing code -> apache/cordova.

I open app.js and i see errors on the constructor and the decorator.

  templateUrl: 'app/app.html'

Saying that the @ symbol is an invalid character.

constructor(app: IonicApp, platform: Platform) {

Essentially it is complaining about the typing. The errors are “expected )”, “expected (”… etc. If i remove “app:” and “platform:”, it will no longer have errors.

What can i do to fix these issues?

Temporarily unable to directly use the VS2015 start compile

you can write code with VS and using the command line compiler to run

Or fully used. TS encoding standard
