afaik typescript also needs a compiler no? babel has a typescript plugin too.

Technically, yes. But, to me it is much more seamless with everything I've needed so far bundled with TS. It feels less cobbled together than using Babel, Webpack, or Rollup. Plus, it essentially automatically stays updated as new language features are added.
