TypeScript Vs JavaScript: Which one Is Better?

Despite their similarities (which are a lot), whether JavaScript (JS) is really better than TypeScript (TS) - or vice-versa - lies in their differences.

This article seeks to explain the current main contrasts between both languages and provides code examples of each. Further, we will explain whether JS and TS are object-oriented programming (OOP) languages and which one a developer should learn.

Finally, we will disclose which is better! As we know, JavaScript is a language that has highly contributed to the web’s success. Is it time for TypeScript to take over? Let’s find out.

Conclusion

What is JavaScript?

JavaScript (JS) is the most popular programming language in the world. It is considered a high-level language that helps to create interactive and dynamic web pages. Together with HTML and  CSS, JavaScript is also one of the core technologies for web applications and is highly characterized by its dynamic typing and just-in-time (JIT) compiler.

Plus, it is a multi-paradigm language due to its ability to support functional programming, imperative programming styles, and event-driven programming. JavaScript followed a client-side implementation (when the script runs on the user’s browser). However, it also has engines that allow server-side implementations (scripts run on the web server, and the response is customized according to each user’s request).

JavaScript started standing out as a server-side technology mainly due to the development and popularity of  Node.js. Nonetheless, it is not easy to handle large and complex applications in JavaScript because, as the code grows, it becomes harder to maintain and reuse. Thus, despite the benefits, JavaScript on the server (backend) also made things messier and more complicated to handle. To overcome this struggle, Microsoft introduced TypeScript.

Key takeaways from JavaScript

  • Most popular programming language;
  • Full-fledged, cross-platform, multi-paradigm, dynamic language;
  • Client-side and server-side implementation;
  • JIT compilation;
  • Compatible with all browsers;
  • Developed for small scripts.

Java Vs. JavaScript: Know the Difference

What a mess it could be to share the same name — especially if you are a programming language. Even if you are already over 20 years old, IT newbies periodically confuse you with your namesake. This happens all the time with Java and JavaScript, although they are not related at all! As someone on the internet said. They correlate in much the same way as a car and a carpet.

Why do these two languages have such similar names? How do they differ from each other, and what else do they have in common? This article will provide the answers to these questions.
