And just a fun fact,
What is TypeScript and where is it used for?
The following is a quick comparison.
(In case you are wondering, types are nothing but the characteristic or property of the value you give such as whether the given value is a number or null or symptom. Top types include string , number , undefined, null, boolean, and symbol.)
- Strongly typed:
- TypeScript supports JS libraries:
- Static typing:
Using IntelliSense, TypeScript adds coding hints as code is added. It further helps developers in code editing with features like code completion, parameter info, quick info, and member lists. These features aid developers in coding by reducing their efforts which leads to quicker delivery with fewer errors.
- Cross-platform capability:
With its cross-platform capability, developers can build cross-platform applications using HTML, CSS and TypeScript which run on multiple OS and devices. This saves a lot of development time and effort and so does the development cost.
- Faster compilation:
Which are the top companies that have opted in for TypeScript?
As per the report by StackShare, there are reportedly 4381 companies that are using TypeScript in their tech stack.
The following are some of the top companies using TypeScript.
These companies are in existence because of their products. They always aim for maximum stabilized products which meet the standards of the modern world. So, to build such products, they choose tech stack very wisely.
The following are the top reasons why big companies are choosing TypeScript and why we also use TypeScript for building healthcare digital solutions.
- It makes development faster:
With IntelliSense, TypeScript supports developers to write accurate code. It shows suggestions and even autocompletes what developers are putting in. Such a feature makes coding faster and saves time and cost.
- It detects errors early:
As discussed, developers don’t have to run the code to know whether there are errors or not. Because TypeScript shows an error in the run time itself. This again saves crucial time and cost.
- It reduces the errors:
- It handles complex programs:
Ultimately, top companies are using TypeScript to save development time and cost while making sure of fewer errors and ease of use for developers.
Being a modern-age IT company, we understand the gravity of choosing the right tech stack. A bad tech stack leads to disaster – if not now then later. But disaster is sure.
