Reactotron vs TypeScript: What are the differences?

Developers describe Reactotron as "A CLI and OS X app for inspecting your React JS and React Native apps". Plug it into your app as a dev dependency so it adds nothing to your product builds. Use it to: view your application state, show API requests & responses, perform quick performance benchmarks, and more. On the other hand, TypeScript is detailed as "A superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript output". TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development. It's a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.

Reactotron can be classified as a tool in the "MVC Tools" category, while TypeScript is grouped under "Templating Languages & Extensions".

Reactotron and TypeScript are both open source tools. It seems that TypeScript with 51.2K GitHub stars and 7.07K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Reactotron with 10.5K GitHub stars and 615 GitHub forks.

          Review ofTypeScriptTypeScript

          Typed JavaScript is just fantastic for medium to large size projects. The type system is well thought and compatible with standard JavaScript. Almost any new Javascript-based development should use TypeScript to save time and prevent technical debt over time.

          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 Sometimes @types/ don't work, other times types are outdated. This can lead to problems with newly-installed libraries.

          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.

          TypeScript is used in Kuro (https://github.com/Marc3842h/kuro).

          Kuro is the browser facing portion of shiro. Typescript is the language in which the web server and the frontend scripts are written in. They later get compiled down to vanilla JavaScript.

          Excellent design-time type checking and the ability for the Typescript compiler to attach typing information to metadata at compile time allows for relatively simple type checking at run-time as well.

          We, our team can sleep comfortable at night know "x is undefined" will not occur in production. It's also really helpful as IDE help in code completion when they know types.
