This was what I thought when I started using Typescript.
I knew Typescript a couple of years ago. At that time, I thought it would sound good. However, I didn't need to use it since at that time I didn't use React.js and project I worked wasn't really using js.
Then, I met my friend who loves Typescript during I was working for my startup.
He always told me
Use Typescript because it's legit!!!!
I was like "Okay man, I will try it soon." I didn't think about it seriously. Actually, I tried a couple of tutorials (very simple and small). Unfortunately, I didn't see its necessity.
Later 1 year, I started working on React.js + Typescript.
My co-workers told me about the necessity of Typescript. In theory, I could understand that, but to be honest it didn't hit me since I had a kind of tough time with Typescript.
However, now it really hit me.
I agree with this and what my friend told.
The thing that really hit me is
When I read Nodejs project code a couple of weeks ago, I got really confused since I wasn't familiar with the variable naming rule of the project, so really tough to predict the type of variables.
But, I don't think everyone should use Typescript
I guess to start using Typescript there should be a couple of things
- Members are familiar with ES6
- A transition period is predictable
- There is a person familiar with webpack
Simple template reactjs+typescript
The thing is that I haven't finished my portfolio site with react+typescript lol
