I can already just use babel thanks to @babel/preset-typescript. I'm commenting on how it would be nice if the TS team could drop compiling and just focus on the typechecking capabilities and making babel better.

Dude, that's awesome! Do you feel age catching up to you at all? I jumped on the tramp with my kids yesterday and hurt my neck really bad from an old back-to-back trick I used to do. ☹️ 👴

I'm suggesting that TypeScript completely remove the compilation feature and focus only on typechecking and making babel better.

Depends on a lot of things... But that definitely wouldn't be my default for most scenarios...

Cool. When you decide you want to upgrade, just email help@testingjavascript.com and they'll get you set up.

What you may consider doing is get the basic tier and upgrade to the others when you feel like you need it. Those first basic courses are really helpful!

I think it'd be really cool if TS pull a Flow and just say: "We'll let Babel handle compilation. We'll just do your typechecking for you." Getting the power of the TS team to help with babel would be AMAZING.

Ah, I hadn't considered that. Especially when leaves begin to fall, I really like being able to mow most of that up.

Ok, so TIL artificial grass is a thing that people actually use for their homes: Talk me out of buying this stuff and never mowing or watering my lawn again...

Are you running these tests without jsdom?

I think one such repository exists (and I reference it in the video I believe). I don't personally have a lot of snippets myself.

Someone asked me how to use react-testing-library to test components that use legacy context. My answer: "Exactly the same as you test with normal context, or with any component. react-testing-library is ambivalent to implementation details!" :)
