Discussion on: TypeScript is a waste of time. Change my mind.

a new one i've run into lately: typescript is bad at building URLs. typescript doesn't have the flexibility you need to coerce data types back down to a plain string (sometimes with missing values!). and if you start re-adding that flexibility, it's hard to see the benefit of a highly abstract, obtuse type system, when you could just use plain javascript.
