TypeScript Turns 5
Today we’re proud of how far the project has come. Both the language and community have seen remarkable growth. This past month alone, TypeScript has seen over 7.5 million downloads on npm. Definitely Typed has reached over 4,600 contributors for over 3,600 packages. Keep in mind those numbers don’t even account for npm packages that are written in TypeScript, or which provide their own declaration files!
And with new feature-rich releases every two months, it’s no wonder TypeScript was voted the 3rd most loved programming language in StackOverflow’s 2017 survey while its question views grew by 142% over the past year.
