TypeScript Question

Is Angular 3 first created in TypeScript?

Is Angularjs 3 based first upon TypeScript? I say first because TypeScript "compiles" to Javascript.

Does this mean a developer can use TypeScript when using Angularjs (and specifically Angularjs 3)?

Answer

To Answer this you must understand the versioning of Angular 2 vs Angular 1

Angular 3 is the next release of Angular 2. Unlike Angular 1 to Angular 2 Angular 3 is like Angular 2.1 if you go by how Angular 1's versioning style.

This is a great Blog post to explain this. https://toddmotto.com/please-stop-worrying-about-angular-3#real-versioning

With this in mind Angular 3 will be like Angular 2 Google will continue writing in TypeScript and pushing the use of TypeScript but you can write Angular 2 and 3 in both.
