TypeScript: The Static Typing Advantage
- Static typing’s purpose is to eradicate the development errors, much before code execution. Imposed restrictions on interacting with objects, forces developers to clearly specify things. A type has to be clearly defined, apart from other parameters that make up the method. As a result, tooling enables the developer to detect the error much before the application is run. Modern tools will ensure that an error is detected in a second (literally). Thanks to static typing, code stability and maintenance is not a hassle.
Early Error Detection
Large App Capabilities
Today we have code lines running to millions and beyond. This is where TypeScript budged in with its large app capabilities.
The ECMAScript Factor
TypeScript edges ahead in its ability on allowing developers use a major part of the latest version of ECMAScript (ECMAScript6, at the time of writing) features (lambda functions, modules, classes, etc). The language thus makes up for the resource gap developers always had. ‘Safer’ Refactoring
