What is TypeScript?
TypeScript is strictly written. This makes it easier to correct error (during integration) which is a very effective way to document large projects. TypeScript programs usually include modules, functions, variables, comments, speeches, and statements – just like any other full programming language.
When the code becomes larger, more complex to handle, and more prone to errors, it is best if errors are caught during compilation itself. This is where TypeScript helps.
Companies using TypeScript include Microsoft, Slack, Medium, and Accenture.
Some of the outstanding features of TypeScript are:
- It is easy to maintain and improves project production.
- Vertical typing and annotations are possible.
- Supports object-focused features such as interface, asset, and classes.
- It is easy to fix the error and get the error early.
- Supports ES6 (ECMAScript) which provides easy syntax for managing assets and assets.
- Good full IDE support.

|Numbers and strings are considered as interfaces.||Number and string are objects.|
|Powerful and intuitive language for large projects.||Neat and clean, most suitable for simple web applications.|
|Community support is still growing.||Huge community support with lots of documentation and support for solving issues.|
|Prototyping is possible||No support for prototyping.|
|Takes time to learn and code, scripting knowledge is a must.||Can be learned on the go, no prior scripting experience is needed.|
|Proper build setup (npm package) is required for static type definitions||No build setup is required.|
