Specifically: 63% of devs *use* TypeScript (a big chunk of that is Angular users, who "use TypeScript" because Angular is written in TS). 36% of JS devs say "I myself *write* TypeScript most or all of the time"

Now the number makes a lot more sense, but still 36% is a *lot* higher than I thought!! Very cool, thanks for sharing!

How would it feel if we were still supporting coffee script?

As I said it’s great, I usually use it myself, but it ain’t JavaScript. I would have used coffee script too.

I certainly agree that it's not JavaScript, but not sure why that would hold us back from supporting it.

In the example you just gave, all of those people are actually writing TypeScript because that's the only supported language Angular supports. I think next time around, there should be some clarification around what "using TypeScript" means because it keeps tripping people up.

I mean, presumably people are using Angular because they like TypeScript, not trapped using TypeScript because they like Angular so much. There are lots of alternative frameworks if you don't like TS.
