Then you have the NAN (NativeScript ANgular) group who uses Angular (which basically requires TypeScript). These are the two major groups.
The docs really focus on these two groups as they go about developing apps completely differently. Most the stuff in the PAN side is useless in NAN, and vise-versa. There is some cross over; but the docs need to cover someone coming into NativeScript wanting to use one of these two major directions.
Anyone who does work in TypeScript should already be familiar with how to use it. If you aren't used to using TypeScript than I would think they should do the great TypeScript tutorials on TypeScript's web site as that will get them up to speed on how to use TypeScript.
So, I'm not sure what NativeScript can provide to help you since following the JS tutorial using TS will work perfectly fine. TypeScript is a first class citizen, you have full NS typings in both NAN & PAN, so you can easily start using TS today in your project. The TNS command line is 100% aware of TS and will automatically transpile it and track changes in the files to do livesync'ing.
Using PAN w/ TS is identical as doing a PAN w/ JS project, other than the file is named .TS rather than .JS.
