Typescript: type safety and better structure in the code base
Last updated on 06.04.2023
What is TypeScript?
TypeScript is an open source programming language developed by Microsoft. It was first released in 2012 and has since become an important part of the web development ecosystem. TypeScript is a statically typed language, which means that developers must declare the data type of variables, functions, and other objects in their code. This helps avoid errors that can be caused by improper type assignments or lack of type checking.
Advantages of TypeScript
One of the biggest advantages of TypeScript is type safety. Static typing allows our developers to catch errors early in the development process, before they become serious problems. The result is higher code quality and better maintainability. Another benefit of TypeScript is better code readability. Typing allows code to be more clearly structured, provides better documentation, and is therefore easier for other developers to understand. In addition, TypeScript provides a variety of features and tools that help our developers be more productive. These include, for example, auto-completion, code refactoring, and debugging support.
A simple example
Our use of TypeScript
We use Typescript for the development of web applications, mobile applications and server applications. Our development team relies on TypeScript especially in conjunction with the Vue.js framework and is excited about the improvements it has brought to our code and error reduction. Using TypeScript has clearly led to better team collaboration and helped us create higher quality and more maintainable code bases.
