Discussion on: Why I moved from React to Svelte and others will follow

At one point I was an evangelist of svelte for quite a while to my friends who work on js projects. The thing it does to optimize your code is great.

One thing that stopped me from moving to svelte was its lack of TypeScript support. It's weird though because svelte was created with TypeScript and it wasn't in Rich Harris's priority to put into.

Once, I opened up svelte's compiler's parser to see if TypeScript could fit into the loop and it's more complicated because it's a whole new language, not just simple old javascript.

But let's see if Rich Harris would do his magic one more time to put TypeScript into it.
