It would be great if Deno could eventually become the default runtime for TypeScript on CG, as a replacement for the current Node.js setup.
One of the main features is the first class support for TypeScript!
Version 1.0 was released about a month ago (May 13, 2020). Although it might sound a bit cutting-edge, it should now be ready for users and seems to be getting quite some traction.
