about the subject

Building on the familiar JavaScript syntax and structures, TypeScript provides a strong type system and inline error flagging. With the precision types added to your code, you’ll more easily take advantage of best practices like code refactoring and type annotations. Since TypeScript compiles to clean and simple JavaScript code, you can confidently run your TypeScript apps on any browser. TypeScript is fully interoperable with all JavaScript libraries, so new and evolving JavaScript features are at your fingertips.
