It is described as
  • TypeScript is a language for application-scale JavaScript development.
  • TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.

  • TypeScript starts from the syntax and semantics that millions of JavaScript developers know today.
  • TypeScript compiles to clean, simple JavaScript code which runs on any browser, in Node.js, or in any other ES3-compatible environment.
  • With TypeScript, you can use existing JavaScript code, incorporate popular JavaScript libraries, and be called from other JavaScript code.
  • These features are available at development time for high-confidence application development, but are compiled into simple JavaScript.
