TypeScript versus ES6


A good question is: Why would you want to use TypeScript versus ES6?

A few reasons for me:

  • I have to use a transpiler anyway in order to support older browsers such as Babel
  • TypeScript gives me types
  • You can still use JavaScript as valid TypeScript (TS being a superset of JS)
  • It seems to be a more natural fit for Java developers
  • Tooling support seems pretty good
  • AngularJS 2.0 will use it natively - as such you have Google and Microsoft supporting it
