Typescript has been a win because, in general, it makes codebase maintenance less brittle. It's significantly easier to refactor in TS than JS, which encourages incremental improvements, file re-organizing, etc. Our developers are happier with the overall development experience.
The downside is that TS sometimes exacerbates problems caused by Node's fragmented ecosystem. Sometimes @types/
If your project is big enough, I'd say TS is nearly always worth it, but it can make selecting libraries a pain.
Used for Node.js personal projects that I think will have a longer lifetime than others, or that are combined with a web front end component like Angular (to share types).
Generally a poor developer experience. Usage decreasing recently compared to other preferred programming languages/platforms.
