TypeScript is a new language and toolset designed to make JavaScript coding feel more familiar to developers used to working with statically-typed languages. TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. TypeScript adds optional static types, classes, and modules to JavaScript to enable great tooling and better structuring of large JavaScript applications.
