Using Rest Parameters in TypeScript Functions

Updated: November 17, 2021 By: A Goodman Post a comment

In TypeScript, you can use the spread operator (…) as the final parameter of a function. All of the arguments (except the ones that were explicitly declared before the three dots) passed to that function will be taken and placed in an array.

Words may be confusing and non-intuitive. The example below will make things much clearer.


const example = (name: string, age: number, ...skills: string[]): void => {
  console.log(`Hello ${name}`);
  console.log(`You are ${age} years old`); => {
    console.log(`You can code in ${skill}`)

// Invoke the function
example('John Doe', 41, 'Javascript', 'PHP', 'C', 'Java');


Hello John Doe
You are 41 years old
You can code in Javascript
You can code in PHP
You can code in C
You can code in Java
