Introduction to TypeScript

Welcome to TypeScript:

Welcome to TypeScript. Let’s begin!

JavaScript was created in 1995 as a simple scripting language for simple web pages in browsers. It wasn’t capable of enabling the types of dynamic websites we see today until 1999, and using JavaScript in this way wasn’t common until 2005.

JavaScript was created to be very flexible and easy to use for small applications. These characteristics make JavaScript an excellent first language to learn. They also make it less than ideal for developing large-scale applications with hundreds or even thousands of files. When a developer changes one part of code in a way that breaks other regions, stricter programming languages will warn them. So, JavaScript will not, which frequently results in unexpected runtime behavior.

To solve these flaws, Microsoft created TypeScript in 2012, which combines the flexibility of JavaScript with the benefits of a stricter language.

TypeScript is a programming language for JavaScript that adds types. It enables us to write JavaScript using a set of tools known as a type system, which may detect potential flaws, clarify the structure of our code, and assist in refactoring. Introduction to TypeScript also brought newer JavaScript language features like arrow functions and classes. From open-source projects like Angular, TypeScript is now one of the most used languages in the world. So, an introduction to TypeScript is important for beginners.

Features of TypeScript:

Static typing, Strongly typed, Modules, Optional Parameters, and other features are available in TypeScript. Classes, interfaces, inheritance, generics, and other object-oriented programming features can support by TypeScript. TypeScript is a fast, simple, and most importantly, simple to learn programming language. At compile time, TypeScript includes an error-checking feature. Because TypeScript is the superset of JavaScript, it supports all JavaScript libraries. Because of its inheritance, TypeScript encourages reusability. Hence TypeScript’s tooling support provides autocompletion, type checking, and source documentation, making app development as simple as possible. So, to define external JavaScript libraries, TypeScript has a definition file with the .ts extension.

Helpful Tools:

Here are some useful tools to help you along your journey!

Setting up an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) can be difficult for beginners. The Online Compiler will enable you to run your code inside your browser without the need to install an IDE. If you need a more detailed explanation of a specific topic, the best place to find answers is in the Official Documentation.
