    I was only surprised by point 3.

    What is more, you will notice these quirks while programming which is a good time to notice quirks.

    Giving its aim to type real-world TypeScript, I think it is a very well designed language.

      The content is good, but man, that website is rough. Just look at this: https://i.imgur.com/VM2c1d5.png - between the huge fixed header and the subscription notification, 65% of the screen is unusable on my iPad. Even after dismissing the notification box, only 2/3 of the screen is text.

        Indeed. I disabled scripts for this website in umatrix and everything became fine at once. :)

        (well, firefox’ reader mode helps too)

      2. 2

        Point 3 is a problem with type inference i think

        Object literals are not inferred by the strict string literal types, or numbers..

        If you make the variables with as const “typecasting” it should work.

          Wonder what are the kinds of frontend applications where you need 100% sound type systems where typescript won’t be a good fit. Does anyone have any examples/experiences?

            I really like structural type systems, it’s the purest way of polymorphism.

            But I never though how messy it looks when the language supports classes, because coming from C++ we’re used that inherence is used for polymorphism (and code reuse).
