developed from henceforth.
messier when the code grows, making it difficult to maintain and reuse. This raises a lot of questions for someone new to web development. What sets the two languages apart? Is one
better than the other? To determine that, we would need to look into the comparison between
During the early years of Web, webpages could only be static and had no dynamic behaviour
after they were loaded from the browser. In 1995, the founder of Netscape Communications had a vision that these webpages needed a way to become more dynamic. This led to the birth
in language name, syntax and standard libraries with Java, the two languages are distinct and
side scripting languages with almost 95% of web pages using it.
Now that you know why and how these two languages were developed, here are some of the
key differences between them.
The Type System that makes them divergent
The main purpose of a type system is to reduce bugs in programs and this checking can happen either statically or dynamically. Oftentimes, Type systems are specified as part of programming languages and built into interpreters and compilers.
TypeScript has the feature of static typing and checks for all variables and expressions against their types are performed during compilation time. It provides greater performance and offers more opportunities for compiler optimizations. Static typing also reduces the likelihood of some kinds of errors.
Do they follow the same programming paradigm?
The typeScript was introduced to the public as an Object-Oriented programming language and supports OOP concepts like abstraction, classes, interfaces, inheritance, generics and plenty more with its smaller and clearer syntax. It improves code quality and maintainability and provides code reusability.
Compilation or interpretation?
Does it support Prototyping?
A prototype is a design pattern that lets you clone objects and add methods and properties to
Syntax in programming language refers to the set of rules for writing a program. A Typescript
How about Annotations?
Annotations are structural elements that contain meta-information in the source code of the
programme. It can be used for different purposes like documentation, hints, error avoidance and
- Takes time to compile the code.
- Easy to debug and early detection of errors is possible
- Allows better development time tool support
- Faster when it comes to coding for application
- Developers will not need to wait for the page to reload as it references the code immediately
