re: Want to write backend in typescript. VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

It's low friction to adopt. I'm using TypeScript for the microservice architecture of my SaaS product, my backends tend to use Express at the foundation. Writing the backend in TypeScript is fairly low-friction from my experiences, there's a good amount of Type Support for npm packages (ex: @types/express)

I will note, my team has been inconvenienced by incorrect or missing type definitions a couple times with our dependency choices, but it's rare. Ours have been related to dependencies for SAML & OIDC. Know that it's going to happen, and you're going to have to choose between addressing the gaps (tooling, petitioning the dependencies to add it, writing your own), or ignoring/disabling the rule.
