Differences from Sequelize-Cli (non-TypeScript)

With sequelize-cli, the ``model:generate`` command would produce JavaScript files in two folders: /models and /migrations, or other folders as specified in your .sequelizerc file. The ``db:migrate`` command would then exe ute these JavaScript files to update your database.
With sequelize-cli-typescript, ``model:generate`` produces TypeScript files in the same two folders (or again, as specified in your .sequelizerc file). But before you can run ``db:migrate`` you must compile your migrations. (The step of compiling your migrations is left to you.)
You could compile your migrations along with your other code, or as part of a separate script. After you have compiled your migrations, then you can run ``db:migrate``.
It's usually the case that the compiled JavaScript code will be put in a different directory than the source TypeScript code, so whereas sequelize-cli had one ``migrations-path`` setting, sequelize-cli-typescript has two: ``migrations-source-path` and `migrations-compiled-path``, which default to /migrations and /migrations/compiled respectively.
