FULL DISCUSSION
 

Typescript seems to be really gathering attention nowadays. I remember avoiding Angular, as I had to learn another language.. Typescript. But its that same typescript that made me take Angular as well as trying all Possibilities to use wherever I use javascript from React to Electron Js. High quality intellisense and type enforcement makes Typescript 1st class.

 

To be fair having to learn Typescript AND Angular at the same time makes learning both significantly more difficult.

 

Nope. I stayed with React and Typescript. Angular's strategy felt too heavy for simple applications.

I wasn't defending angular, I don't use it either. I was saying that learning both at the same time makes both hard to learn.

 

That was my exact course, and I believe that is why I am so biased toward TypeScript. I avoided so much JavaScript pain.

I definitely took courses on fundamental JS later on, because as wonderful as TS is, at some point you will break your face if you don’t understand the underlying language.

Oh yeah I LOVE TS, I just was overwhelmed with it at my first shot(I come from static typed languages but was very familiar with JS by this point), and it was annoying not knowing if my problems were TS or Angular when I tried learning both at the same time.

 

If you're in Reactland, it couldn't be easier to get started with TypeScript these days since support landed in Babel 7 and they implemented support in Create React App.

npx create-react-app your-project-name --typescript
