Is it worth to try Typescript in React Project

My Answer is NO.

The reason is pretty simple, the typescript packages contains too much errors and issues, it will introduce more problem and bugs than the benefit it brings to you.

Another issue it comes is the version compatibility issue. As the react project grows, each one of these new react related components, Redux, React-Redux, React-Router etc, every single one of these components will need its corresponding typescript type definitions, and I am sure they will have compatibility issue between the current supported version and latest version, just like what it is now. When your project grow, you will end up having lots of constraints to adapt a very simple new version of one of these component.

So for now, at this stage, don’t use typescript.
