Javascript is a familiar and powerful scripting language for handling web development projects to enhance website interaction. The javascript is the client-side language and if comparing it with typescript, javascript is the subset of typescript. I.e; typescript is javaScript with static typing, classes, and interface. It is not possible to run typescript language on any browser, instead, a compiler is required for compiling and translating this code to Javascript.


When considering the history of Typescript, this language is developed and maintained by Microsoft Corporation and the creator is Anders Hejlsberg. TypeScript 0.8 was the first version of Typescript released for the public in October 2012. The first version of Typescript was not accepted widely because of the lack of support by major IDEs. The latest version released is TypeScript 4.2 and it has included new features.


What is Typescript? This is an open-source object-oriented programming language that is mostly used for client-side programming. TypeScript compiler or Babel is required for transforming Typescript code to Javascript, clean and simple code that can be run anywhere like browser, on Node.JS, or in apps. The Typescript compiler can convert .ts files into Es3, ES4 and ES5. The typescript code is easier to read and understand, and this language provides highly productive development tools. The major features include static typing support, generics support, and functions with optional and REST parameters. Reduced bugs, portability, compatibility with JavaScript libraries, readability, etc… are major benefits of Typescript. 


The Typescript language will support most of the basic types like boolean, number, array, tuple, any, void, unknown, enum, string, etc… The type checking in Typescript language is also known as “duck typing” or “structural subtyping” and it will focus on the shape that values have. The interfaces are used for naming these types and for defining contracts within the code or code outside the project. In Typescript language, both a named function or an anonymous function can be created based on the developing application.
