I am disappointed by dynamic typing

  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • TypeScript

    TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript output.

    The cost for this is that programs with type errors must still be specified to have a well-defined semantics. That in turn means that you can't hang useful language features off static types.

    For example, TypeScript explicitly declares as a design goal that they don't use the type system to generate different code:

    Meanwhile in Dart, you can write:

       double d = 1;
