It is basically a language used for scripting and creating interactives websites for the users. It is basically a client inclined language used for generally small projects.
It automatically runs once the codes are written in plain text format on the webpage.
Introduced in 1995 and previously called Mocha, is successful language in the history of coding science.
What is Typescript?
Introduced by Google, typescript needs a complier to run and cannot be implemented directly to the webpage. It is an open-source language.
Now let’s look at the differences between the two languages.
Speaking in simpler terms, static typing indicates an error if you allot a type of value to the variable at this moment and allot another in the next line, an error will be generated, as you cannot change the type of value assigned.
Let’s see an example, if we allot a=12; and then write a=dance; you will have an error generated due to static typing as the type of value assigned to variable ‘a’ changes from numeric to string.
This is a huge advantage which saves a lot of time and energy if you have results linked to one of your outputs, that is your final result depends upon some intermediate output.
Prompting of errors
If you are a coder, you know that how much time consuming it is to write a code, without mistakes and that’s a really tough job.
We tend to make mistakes of various sorts from syntax error to value assigning due to heavy pressure.
In typescript, the codes are run prior to output for any errors and this easy error identification helps us to rectify and re run again.
Type of language
The more intelligent the language is, thee easier it is for the coders to code reach their desired output.
What is optional parameter? If you are writing a code and forget to allot a type to your parameter, optional parameter will allot “undefined” as the type. But a default parameter will assign a default value to parameter.
Ease of learning
If you are new and start with typescript, you tend to make a lot of mistakes and you will get infinite errors. Solving them will make you start hating this language.
As we discussed, typescript is a strict and strong static typed language. You need to compile the codes before running it.
Errors are displayed and you need to solve them for your code to run and give you an output.
For such process, you need to annotate your code. Make it easier for someone other to understand your code and work on it easily.
It might be tedious for someone else to understand your way of thinking, especially in complicated and long code projects.
Typescript is used by companies such as MongoDB, Evernote, Freedom Financial Network, Asana, Screen Award etc.
It’s completely up to the user to choose between the up to two languages they are comfortable with and have progress with.
