I'd say that your post title should be "Programming Best Practices"...
Webstorm and typescript might overload your computer resources for a number of reasons. If you take account of what your IDE/Editor, bundler, compiler, lint, and others do, you'll see that larger files are way expensive to perform actions (compile, syntax checks, etc) than smaller ones...
Still, you shared valuable content! Thanks :)

PS.: I've been using a MacBook Pro 2013(i5/ 8gb RAM/ SSD) to work with numerous projects of different complexities and sizes. Therefore, it works fine with 4 VSCode instances, servers, RMDBS, Browsers, Spotify and more
