Decision about JavaScript, TypeScript

Avatar of MarkusReynolds1989

I use TypeScript because it's like a prettier more type safe version of JavaScript. The big thing with Typescript is that it's clearer to write OOP and type safe items into it. The biggest drawback for me is that you have to transpile it into javascript for it to run meaning you have an extra step before it will run. I don't have a ton of experience with it but the little I've used is really great, and again, there is a ton of documentation because it's a Microsoft product.
