Convert Flow code to TypeScript.
The goal of this project is to provide a tool that can translate 95% of Flow to TypeScript while maintaining a high percentage of the existing type information. We don't want to convert code and end up with everything using any. We also want to avoid having to make a lot of manual changes to files afterwards, e.g. changing SyntheticEvent to React.Event.
Quick start
  • yarn global add @khanacademy/flow-to-ts
  • flow-to-ts [options] <file globs>
  • when exact translation isn't possible:
- downgrade to any when possible and provide a gentle warning - when it isn't possible to downgrade (e.g. %checks), remove the syntax
and provide a forceful warning that the code in question will need a human
to convert it manually.
  • best effort to maintain blank lines and the position comments, this isn't
always possible so warn in those situations where we can't, e.g. converting object type spreads to intersection types.


Bug reports for converting Flow to TypeScript should include a link to the playground with an example of a minimal reproducible example of the bug.
