I find it astonishing that every article I see on DEV that recommends TypeScript has a comment section full counter-arguments, fierce discussions and sometimes hatred.

I mean, it's up to you whether you "should" use TypeScript. It gives you some benefits, but tradeoffs as well. Most certainly, it depends on the project whether TypeScript could be beneficial in the long run

Well, others simply are expressing their opinions and want to avoid misinformation from being spread.

Typescript's a little bit controversial because of its popularity and the number of devs "worshipping" it without considering its downsides.

And also I mean no offense, but there are so many similar posts about reasons to use Typescript with lack of quality and obvious self-promotion at the end. It's just too tired, and I don't blame the others for being annoyed/blunt towards content like these.

Thanks for explaining! That makes sense to me. Also, I agree on what you said about the typescript posts

It's not like typescript being the better Javascript in any aspect.
