TypeScript has been around for 10 years. 10 years ago – October 1, 2012, TypeScript first public appearance. Anders Hejlsberg, who led TypeScript development at the time, described TypeScript this way:
The first part of TypeScriptDesign goals:
- Does not add runtime overhead to existing programs
- Align with current and future ECMAScript proposals
- Avoid adding expression-level syntax
- Use a consistent, fully erasable structured type system
Microsoft mentioned that TypeScript has an important property that is inseparable from today’s prosperous ecosystem:open source. TypeScript was free and open source from the start —Both the language specification and the compiler are open source projects,And operate in a truly open way. In fact, Microsoft’s external posture at the time was not the “embracing open source” it is now, so they didn’t really understand how TypeScript’s open source helped it succeed. Therefore, some people believe that TypeScript has largely led Microsoft to start moving more towards open source.
Today, TypeScript is still actively developed and iteratively improved and used by millions of developers around the world. In many programming language rankings, indices or developer surveys, TypeScript consistently ranks at the top and is the most popular and used programming language.
