What is TypeScript?
History of TypeScript
|Typing||It is used for static typing.||It is dynamically typed|
|Tooling||It comes with IDEs and code editors.||It has limited built-in tooling.|
|Debugging||Strong typing can be used to identify the errors.||It needs more testing and debugging to identify the error.|
- Microsoft sponsors an open-source project.
- The tool was created specifically for tiny scripts.
- Classes, interfaces, and modules are all supported.
- Cross-compilation is possible.
- Support for classes, interfaces, and modules has been added.
- It runs on the client side, so the load on the server is reduced.
- It is the most used scripting language for web development.
- There is no need to install anything to run the language, as it is supported by most browsers.
- Sometimes a single error can stop the rendering of the website. So, it is also the drawback of it.
- It is a lightweight scripting language.
- It is a platform-independent prototype-based programming language.
- TypeScript supports JS libraries and API documentation.
- Tool support, object-oriented programming methods, and improved code structure reduce development time.
- It may go beyond the standard decorators like async/await
Features of TypeScript
TypeScript can be used anywhere
TypeScript is portable, meaning it can run on any browser, device, or operating system. TypeScript is not limited to a particular platform.
JS libraries are supported by TypeScript
Frequently Asked Questions
TypeScript offers static typing, aiding in early error detection, code maintainability, and scalability for larger projects, making it preferable for complex applications.
What is '!' In TypeScript?
In TypeScript, the exclamation mark (`!`) denotes a non-null assertion operator, used to indicate that a variable is not null or undefined, suppressing type checking.
The learning curve for TypeScript is steep. It also necessitates scripting expertise.
