re: Why I don't like Typescript VIEW POST


Unfortunately Elm and Purescript are very niche. You won't find a lot of companies investing on them. Plus who said that a Typesystem is always better than no typesystem? With Typescript you have a small leeway and an escape hatch in some edge cases. With Elm and Purescript you are stuck and you have to follow the syntax.


Elm does let you “escape” and run JavaScript, but it does so in a type safe way. I’m not going to speak of Purescript because I’m much less familiar.

You absolutely do need the right kind of company who want to invest in technologies like Elm though - I definitely don’t think it’s right for everyone.
