TypeScript is a strongly typed, object-oriented, and an open source programming language developed by Microsoft. It is both language and a set of tools. TypeScript is a statically typed superset of JavaScript, compiled to readable, standards-based JavaScript. It adds features like optional types, classes, modules to JavaScript. A TypeScript program is composed of modules, functions, comments, variables, statements, and expressions. It supports tools for the development of large-scale JavaScript applications for any browser, host, OS.

TypeScript: Advantages of using TypeScript

  • TypeScript is purely object-oriented programming.
  • It writes pure object-oriented codes in a faster, cleaner, and easier manner.
  • TypeScript makes working with modules and classes easier.
  • It has an API for DOM manipulation.
  • TypeScript can be used for client-side and server-side development.
  • It has a “compiler” that can convert to JavaScript-equivalent code.
  • TypeScript allows you to declare an interface that can be "implemented."
  • Since it is a transpiler, it allows you to use new ECMAScript features.
