Although, developers sometimes treat programming languages as scripting languages because they act as a mediator between design and the hard code and support the actual program running smoothly.
Scripting languages act as a mediator between the actual code and the webpage. They usually get interpreted runtime rather than compiled like any programming language would.
Definition of TypeScript
TypeScript provides various types and features such as namespaces, inheritance, unions, interfaces, classes, variables, comments, functions, expressions, and modules.
Features of TypeScript
TypeScript offers various basic types like any other scripting language. They are Number, Array, Boolean, String, and many more.
It also provides a set of unique types of its own such as, Void, Any & Unknown, Never, Intersection, Union Types, and the list goes on!
Here are some of the most distinctive features that TypeScript eases out the programmers with:
- TypeScript also supports Object-oriented features such as classes, inheritance, etc.
- Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is fully-featured and functional for developers.
- Static Typing is another feature that helps programmers detect known errors before compilation. This feature makes the developer declare the variable type so that code ambiguity can be minimized later.
- Language features of TypeScript, such as namespaces, interfaces, generics, etc., are pretty helpful.
Reading the above details of both the languages, it is pretty evident that they have their pros and cons.
While one gives you the freedom to not specify your variable type, the other would help you with its language features.
