Discussion on: This is why I hate Typescript

Typescript is my favorite. All the fun of JavaScript, the type safety of Java and little to none of the biggest issues those two languages have on their own.

It’s only a PITA to get type definitions for 3rd party js libraries

You have to notice that you will never have the type safety of Java or C#. Those use an entire different method for type safe and they check on run time.

TS will check as far as it can, and would do it only in build time.

I think this is really important.
