The TypeScript compiler, named
As such it should be possible to package it in an extension so TS in = JS out
There's a node package for it as well (had a go at porting Node yesterday - not fun)

Yes, TypeScript is very promising. When I tried it a few months ago I found it very usable, but the combo TS + Chrome was lacking a little in runtime errors (the JS errors were often not helpfull) and debugging (support for source maps).
It will, of course, work with any JS library including WebWorks, BBUI.js, JQuery Mobile etc but becomes much, much more functional when that library has a matching declaration file.
