ASP.NET and Web Tools 2012.2 Update. Needed for CoffeeScript support in your IDE and also has some new bangin’ features for web tooling in your IDE.
VS 2012 Web Essentials Extension 2.9 This extension gives you the split screen effect and can compile and minimize your TypeScript/CoffeeScript. (Note: version 3.0 removes support for TypeScript…so use version 2.9 until Visual Studio fully supports TypeScript)
Install TypeScript. Follow the instructions here to get TypeScript installed into VS 2012. Warning As of August 2013 There are some major problems with the 0.9.X releases of TypeScript (See the comments here). I highly recommend using the 0.8.3.1 release (March 29), which is sort of hidden here.
