Features of TypeScript
  • TypeScript is just JavaScript. TypeScript starts with JavaScript and ends with JavaScript. Typescript adopts the basic building blocks of your program from JavaScript. Hence, you only need to know JavaScript to use TypeScript. All TypeScript law is converted into its JavaScript fellow for the purpose of execution.
  • TypeScript supports other JS libraries. Compiled TypeScript can be consumed from any JavaScript code. TypeScript- generated JavaScript can reuse all of the existing JavaScript frameworks, tools, and libraries.
  • JavaScript is TypeScript. This means that any valid. js train can be renamed to. ts and compiled with other TypeScript files.
  • TypeScript is portable. TypeScript is portable across browsers, devices, and operating systems. It can run on any environment that JavaScript runs on. Unlike its counterparts, TypeScript does n’t need a dedicated VM or a specific runtime environment to execute.
