TypeScript Adapter Pattern Example

In this article, we will learn how to use and implement the Adapter Pattern in TypeScript with an example.
Adapter is a structural design pattern that allows objects with incompatible interfaces to collaborate.

Adapter design pattern is one of the structural design patterns and it's used so that two unrelated interfaces can work together. The object that joins this unrelated interface is called an Adapter.

TypeScript Abstract Factory Pattern Example

Let's create abstractFactory.ts file and add the following code to it:
export class Adaptee {
    public method(): void {
        console.log("`method` of Adaptee is being called");

export interface Target {
    call(): void;

export class Adapter implements Target {
    public call(): void {
        console.log("Adapter's `call` method is being called");
        var adaptee: Adaptee = new Adaptee();


Let's create demo.ts file and add the following code to it:
import { Adapter } from "./adapter";

export function show() : void {
 var adapter: Adapter = new Adapter();
  • Compile the above code using the TypeScript compiler.
  • Above code is compiled to plan JavaScript code
  • Run Javascript code using node
PS C:\Users\RAMESH\design_patterns_in_typescript\adapter> tsc --target ES5 .\demo.ts
PS C:\Users\RAMESH\design_patterns_in_typescript\adapter> node .\demo.js
Adapter's `call` method is being call
