    Thankfully, there are some solutions that can help reduce the boilerplate of these manual conversions. For instance, chimney :

    I want to upgrade one project to Scala 3.1, but I'm using the macro heavy chimney ( to reduce the boilerplate, which is not available for Scala 3 yet. My idea was to copy and paste the code that chimney generates on 2.13, and after that uncomment the uses of chimney for now.

    In my $dayjob we originally used Scala, but I pushed for a couple of new services to be written in TypeScript/Node as it was really hard to hire Scala developers. I'd say it worked well, we even took a somewhat functional approach to building things. We tried fp-ts but that was a bit hardcore (when you are trying to hire TypeScript developers who don't know functional programming), so just built Either and Option types which provided 99% of what we needed.

    There are still a few things I miss though:

    * Pattern matching and exhaustive checking. Using a switch statement it is possible to define a function that can emulate the compile-time exhaustive checking, but it's still rather weak compared to what you can do in Scala.

    * Implicits. Being able to define something that can convert say a UUID to a String or vice versa automatically just feels like magic, especially when dealing with data from third party systems.

    * Compiler macros and metaprogramming. It enables tools like Chimney ( to be built, which I don't think are possible with TypeScript right now.
