    ECMAScript proposal for type syntax that is erased - Stage 1

    Support for types in JavaScript itself - There is an official proposal for this with backing. There seems to be a significant desire for this, particular in the enterprise. Microsoft have designed TypeScript in such a way that it can eventually become native JavaScript and are backing that approach.

  • node

    Node.js JavaScript runtime ✨🐢🚀✨

    Support TypeScript directly - There are numerous issues about this, but the node project overall doesn't seem interested (as it's so easy to just use tsc, node-tsc, or tsx instead - so a fair bit of work for very little gain).
