    ECMAScript proposal for type syntax that is erased - Stage 1

    IMO the only thing that might be able to start replacing typescript in the next decade is the type annotations proposal for JavaScript. But even then this will probably be extremely similar to typescript, I'm not even sure if I'd count it as a separate thing.

    Tracking ECMAScript Proposals

    Well the TypeScript creators have started a proposal for adding type annotations into JavaScript, which they hope would eliminate TypeScript as we know it and essentially fold it into JavaScript.

  • 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.

  • rescript-compiler

    The compiler for ReScript.

    I'm hoping ReScript catches on. Much more pleasant to work with than TypeScript, with sum types and pattern matching.
