Entity-Systems for typescript based games

Entity-Systems for typescript based games For my latest game project Frozzen I want to explore how an external UI, build with Angular, would work for a browser based game.

Entity-Systems are much better introduced by any of the huge amount of articles out there (for example the classic on T=Machine but I feel they are especially well suited to Javascript/Typescript development....
