Pyright vs TSLint: What are the differences?
What is Pyright? Static type checker for the Python language by Microsoft. Typically 5x or more faster than mypy and other type checkers that are written in Python. It is meant for large Python source bases. It can run in a “watch” mode and performs fast incremental updates when files are modified.
What is TSLint? An extensible linter for the TypeScript language. An extensible static analysis tool that checks TypeScript code for readability, maintainability, and functionality errors. It is widely supported across modern editors & build systems and can be customized with your own lint rules, configurations, and formatters.
Pyright and TSLint are primarily classified as "Static Type Checkers" and "Code Review" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Pyright are:
- Hover tool tips that display type information
- Links to symbol definitions
- Smart priority queuing for interactive feedback during editing
On the other hand, TSLint provides the following key features:
- Extensive set of core rules
- Custom lint rules
- Custom formatters (failure reporters)
