Why is the codebase not 100% Typescript?

Of course I’m superhappy with the Typescript support. But I was wondering, why is the codebase not 100% Typescript? In my opinion, any remotely large project with a team larger than one person benefits from it. Heck, I prefer it in small one-man projects too. Is it because it was a later decision in the project?


Others can speak to the history, but I know TS is a priority for the 1.0 release and the Core team and contributors are tackling the tasks piece by piece.

Hey Nick, that is 100% the reason :slight_smile: We were a bit behind the curve in TS adoption and we’re playing catch up now.


Good to hear! :100:
