Recently, I have been witnessing a lot of projects migrating to Typescript and have to ask myself the same question. Is it time to stop using Flow and start using Typescript?
I'm dropping Flow in favor of TypeScript... and you should too.— Jamie 🏳️🌈 (@jamiebuilds) 19. listopadu 2018
Flow just doesn't give a shit about the community... and I say that having worked on the Flow team at Facebook.
Facebook should drop Flow entirely. It's a bad investment for even them at this point
Then came another one from a friend of mine who's been using Flow for a long time:
And then I read a comment from Apollo (GraphQL client) claiming they won't support Flow anymore and are moving to Typescript.
That said, Typescript definitely has it's benefits like abstract/protected/private classes, methods and properties and there is a great community providing type definitions for almost every library.
So yeah, I am thinking of rewriting my current project to use Typescript.
Is there any hope left for Flow? Does it still have some benefits for which you would not migrate to Typescript?
There are a lot of people who love both JS and UX/CSS. If we stop labeling people just as “JS developers” or “UX developers”, we can achieve a ceasefire in the current “JS vs. CSS” war and achieve a mutually benefiting peace.
