- Microsoft developed Typescript for the only purpose of making large scale app development easier for both Microsoft projects and projects for other customers.
- Optional static typing of TypeScript is tremendously helpful. Because of this, a variable after being declared doesn’t change its type and can only take certain values. This results in less errors in the code and improved performance.
- TypeScript by detecting common bugs right at the compile stage takes away concerns of the developers and helps them concentrate more on the app logic.
- TypeScript is highly predictable as all aspects just stay in the way it was originally defined.
- Typescript code is highly readable and expressive. From the code, one can easily grasp the intent of the developers.
- TypeScript offers rich IDE support. It offers support with several features such as code navigation and autocompletion for allowing precise suggestions.
- TypeScript offers concepts belonging to class-based object-oriented programmings (OOP) such as classes, interfaces, inheritance, and several others.
- TypeScript offers full cross-platform and cross-browser compatibility allowing the web app to run across multiple device platforms and browsers.
- TypeScript enjoys great demand as an open-source language. It also boasts of a steadily growing community.
- Developers having expertise with C#, C++ or Java often think that TypeScript is not a true statically typed language. Naturally, there is the risk of weird type conversions during runtime.
- Because of the better code readability thanks to syntactic sugar and type annotations the development process can slow down. Moreover, additional annotations also make typescript files bigger.
