there IS a "TS for python", but its still growing. It didnt have the explosive growth of TS.

The guys at dropbox (which had Guido Van Rossum) pionereed mypy. From the mypy experience they incorporated PEPs on what python type checkers should agree.

mypy has a bit of a lackluster editor experience, so MS is pushing their own python type checker, PyRight, which is more IDE-friendly. Yeah, and they hired Guido. I frown that pyright is written in javascript (not even typescript... probably for easier VSCode integration).

Havent used pycharm lately but they probably also implement their own type-checking instead of relying on mypy.
