  • ts-auto-guard

    Generate type guard functions from TypeScript interfaces

    To be fair, when writing TypeScript you often end-up needing to write loads of type-guard functions, and there are plenty of popular TypeScript extensions that generate those type-guard functions for you, e.g. https://github.com/rhys-vdw/ts-auto-guard

  • haxe

    Haxe - The Cross-Platform Toolkit

    > I am not opposed to adding strong type checking to JavaScript, but Typescript ain't it.

    If you are curious about this, you might be interested in checking out Haxe [0]. It has static typing, type inference, pattern matching [1] (maybe not on par with ML languages, but still good), and can transpile to multiple targets [2] including JS.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • melange

    A mixture of tooling combined to produce JavaScript from OCaml & Reason

  • purescript

    A strongly-typed language that compiles to JavaScript

  • rescript-compiler

    The compiler for ReScript.

  • reason

    Simple, fast & type safe code that leverages the JavaScript & OCaml ecosystems

  • Nim

    Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula. Its design focuses on efficiency, expressiveness, and elegance (in that order of priority).

    You could add Nim [1] to that list. Many people say it has "the ergonomics of Python but the strong static typing of C++/Rust."
