Typescript sucks and stiffles a lot of the creative development you can do with javascript, if you want to program like java just use java :")

this is needlessly combative and use whatever works for you


js opinion 

@f0x just like every other tool, it has situations where it's useful and others where it's not.

I think for public library development, I'll go with typescript in the future because then it's easier for IDEs to tell developers how to use the lib without them having to read and memorize the docs. (Docstrings get lost in compilation sadly)

For regular frontends, I so far haven't seen the upside of it and I like to keep my bundling and external dependency stack as small as possible
