TypeScript declaration file for Sencha
I was thinking about looking at the existing declaration files that the TypeScript team already produced for JQuery, JQuery UI, node.js, etc. to figure out exactly what kind of metadata it needs and then seeing if it's possible to create declarations for some Sencha classes manually. Then, once I have an idea if it's possible and, if so, what exactly the declarations look like, I could try to automate the construction of the declaration file(s) from the Sencha class system. Even if you could manually create declarations for the entire framework, you wouldn't want to curate them manually; you would want them to be updated automatically whenever the underlying framework changes. Of course, it would be great if Sencha could provide the necessary type declarations. I'm sure the creators and maintainers of the framework understand it better than I ever will.
