TypeScript

What is it?

TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. TypeScript offers support for the latest and evolving JavaScript features that are not necessarily available in current browsers.

Why do we use it?

TypeScript builds on JavaScript by adding classes, modules, interfaces and optional type declarations. It allows us to use next generation JavaScript, today. Our developers can use similar constructs that they use on the server side, bringing the two platforms closer, thus reducing the amount of time a developer needs to spend learning.

How can you benefit from using it?

JavaScript is evolving. Unfortunately, browsers cannot always keep up. TypeScript allows you to be one step ahead of browsers and use new syntax today, but still be able to run your application in current browsers. By using TypeScript today, you will not need to rewrite your applications when the new JavaScript standards will become mainstream.

Our experience with TypeScript

TypeScript is quickly becoming popular as more and more libraries and frameworks adapt it. We have also got our hands on it while migrating our own products to a state-of-the-art technology stack. Take a look at our products that have already been using TypeScript.
