FULL DISCUSSION
 

Typescript looks like it was invented so that people could still write code that resembles C#. Why not embrace javascript as it was designed? How will the story of Typescript not end pretty much like coffeescript, for example? After all, coffeescript looked like it was invented so that people could still write code that resembled ruby. Where is coffeescript today?

 

Coffescript died a lot quicker, typescript is 8 years old at this point and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere

 

I'm not sure it'll end up like CoffeeScript, as its syntax is nonetheless quite similar to that of JavaScript. It mostly does a good job of being an "addition" to JavaScript, unlike CoffeeScript which looks like an entirely new language lol

Its popularity means it's also probably not going anywhere soon. Nonetheless, I do agree that it looks a LOT like C#... C# devs probably have a really easy time getting used to TypeScript lol
