Hi! IMO TS-Pattern and XState are complementary tools that aren't trying to solve the same problem:

  • XState is a state management library, trying to prevent invalid state transition from happening.
  • TS-Pattern is a control flow library, trying to make complex conditional expression easier to read and write, and trying to prevent unhandled cases.
