Is it worth using TypeScript?
Is TypeScript frontend or backend?
TypeScript is a natural fit for the world of frontend applications. With its rich support for JSX and its ability to safely model mutability, TypeScript lends structure and safety to your application and makes it easier to write correct, maintainable code in the fast-paced environment that is frontend development.
Why you should not use TypeScript?
Any network calls, system libraries, platform-specific APIs and non-typed third-party libraries have no way of communicating with TypeScript. As you get used to having your types checked and not having to fully understand the code and the platform, errors and bugs will manifest themselves.
Is TypeScript type safe?
Back to the question about safety, yes TypeScript ensure safety during writing the code. You define the contract, write transformations of the contract, and TS is checking correctness of the code with relation to contract annotations.
Is TypeScript good for backend?
