@public

Standardization: Discretionary
Syntax kind: Modifier

Suggested meaning

Designates that an API item’s release stage is “public”. It has been officially released to third-party developers, and its signature is guaranteed to be stable (e.g. following Semantic Versioning rules).

Example

/**
 * Represents a book in the catalog.
 * @public
 */
export class Book {
  /**
   * The title of the book.
   * @internal
   */
  public get _title(): string;

  /**
   * The author of the book.
   */
  public get author(): string;
};

In this example, Book.author inherits its @public designation from the containing class, whereas Book._title is marked as “internal”.
