In the realm of web development, TypeScript has been a popular choice among developers for its ability to provide static typing to JavaScript, enhancing code quality and maintainability. But, a recent shift in the development landscape has seen some developers and teams moving away from TypeScript and towards JavaScript with JSDoc. This shift has been notably championed by the Svelte team, who have decided to migrate from TypeScript to JavaScript in the Svelte 4 codebase.
