Shoutem UI vs TypeScript: What are the differences?

What is Shoutem UI? Customizable set of components for React Native applications. Shoutem UI is a set of styleable components that enables you to build beautiful React Native applications for iOS and Android. All of our components are built to be both composable and customizable.

What is TypeScript? 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.

Shoutem UI can be classified as a tool in the "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" category, while TypeScript is grouped under "Templating Languages & Extensions".

"Themes" is the primary reason why developers consider Shoutem UI over the competitors, whereas "More intuitive and type safe javascript" was stated as the key factor in picking TypeScript.

Shoutem UI and TypeScript are both open source tools. It seems that TypeScript with 51.1K GitHub stars and 7.06K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Shoutem UI with 4.26K GitHub stars and 481 GitHub forks.

      React Native
      React Native enables you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms using a consistent developer experience based on JavaScript and React. The focus of React Native is on developer efficiency across all the platforms you care about - learn once, write anywhere. Facebook uses React Native in multiple production apps and will continue investing in React Native.
      Ionic
      Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile and desktop-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components for building highly interactive apps. Use with Angular, React, Vue, or plain JavaScript.
      Xamarin
      Xamarin’s Mono-based products enable .NET developers to use their existing code, libraries and tools (including Visual Studio*), as well as skills in .NET and the C# programming language, to create mobile applications for the industry’s most widely-used mobile devices, including Android-based smartphones and tablets, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
      Apache Cordova
      Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
      Flutter
      Flutter is a mobile app SDK to help developers and designers build modern mobile apps for iOS and Android.

      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.
