Hello, I'm struggling with starting requirejs.

I have an module exported which I want to start when my page runs:

export module bootstrapper {
    export function run(): void {

But how do I start this? In an JS example I do the following:

(function() {

    function load() {
        requirejs([], boot);

    function boot() {
        require(['bootstrapper'], function(bs) {; });

But obviously this does not work, because "requirejs" and "require" is not know. Can anyone help me with my starting problems?

I've just blogged about how to use require.js and AMD modules with TypeScript.  The tutorial is a walkthrough from a standard commonJS Greeter application through AMD to require.js and using require.config.

Hope this helps.

I found your blog and I had problems with it. I added a comment, which you either did not allowed, or simply deleted..

Hey Somebody,

Yes, I deleted the comment.  If you would like your comments to be taken seriously next time, then please don't use as an e-mail address.  It is marked as spam immediately and ignored.

I have worked through the contents of the blog several times, and have also provided the full source download as reference - so when you say it doesn't work - please be more specific.

It's interesting that you don't take comments seriously just because of an invalid email (did I really use that? it's usually, no matter what the actual content of the comment is. Most people don't want their emails spread out, and having this as a requirement for comments leads to emails like that.

I'll post the error again when I'm at home and can reproduce it again.
