I know it is a silly comment, but really when you try it out you’ll be asking yourself “why did I even question this?”. You can go with the ts-check flag then advance to the most non-restrictive tsconfig and write javascript in .ts files, and then advance with the typings, interfaces, generics etc. It is worth to read the tsconfig options in the docs and a maybe lighter approach to feature by feature is to read Marius Schulz’s blog. You will not regret, this will be a fantastic, useful and fun upgrade!
