Status of an Workflow

How to find if a workflow is running or not using TypeScript.

Use the @temporalio/client API to make a client connection to Temporal, then make a handle for that workflow, and finally, describe() it. The current status of the workflow is in workflowDescription.status.

try {
    const workflowDescription = await client.getHandle('workflow-id').describe();
    const isRunning = === 'RUNNING';
} catch (e: unknown) {
  if (e instanceof WorkflowNotFound) {
    // The workflow does not even exists
