Our TypeScript development services

Here are a few reasons why an organisation like yours might choose TypeScript for your digital product.

Benefit growth icon

Higher code quality

Thanks to TypeScript’s static type checking, our team is supported to identify and address any code issues sooner rather than later. Not only does this minimise the risk of hold ups in the development process, it reduces the presence of bugs, ultimately resulting in a rock-solid final application.

Benefit security icon

Future proofing

At Lightflows, we’ve always got one eye on what’s next. TypeScript is forward-compatible, which means your codebase will continue to function correctly as JavaScript inevitably changes and evolves. By asking us to build your product with TypeScript, we’ll be making you something likely to be compatible with future web standards.

Benefit reliable icon

Faster development cycles

Want to get your product to market as soon as possible? We do too. As TypeScript is closely integrated with modern IDEs, it naturally generates faster development cycles. Other nifty features, like autocompletion, inline error highlighting and intelligent code suggestions further reduce time and costs, so we can develop at speed to meet your business goals.

Benefit cost icon


We’re not into reinventing wheels here at Lightflows. Because it’s a superset of JavaScript, TypeScript is compatible with existing JavaScript libraries and frameworks. So if you choose to commission a TypeScript product, there’s no need to start from scratch – we can seamlessly integrate your existing solutions.

Benefit integration icon

Scalable architecture

We want to help your product soar. TypeScript is built for scale, so if your product needs to grow in complexity or features, our team will use TypeScript’s modular architecture to accommodate its demands without any fuss well into the future.

Benefit speed icon

Cost efficiency

We understand that development decisions require detailed cost analysis. While there is of course an initial outlay to commissioning a TypeScript product, we’ve seen time and again that the accompanying reduction in runtime errors, improved maintainability and efficient developer tooling leads to significant cost savings in the long run.

Benefit speed icon

Enhanced performance

Although TypeScript itself won’t directly improve the runtime performance of your digital product or web apps, the fact that it requires developers to write to a stricter set of universal rules can have a positive effect on performance.

Our goal with our TypeScript maintenance and support services is to ensure your software remains reliable, secure and efficient, and that it can adapt to your evolving needs in a dynamic digital landscape.

Digital products suited to TypeScript

TypeScript is an extremely popular language for good reason. A direct relation of JavaScript, it’s versatile by nature and can be used to deliver both front-end and back-end technology. Although it can be useful for compact tasks, it really comes into its own for longer term or larger scale projects. Here’s a quick run down of the kind of applications that can be developed with TypeScript.

Frequently asked TypeScript questions

We firmly believe that TypeScript is among the most effective frameworks for building your application. We aim to instil the same confidence in you, so here are some insights and answers to frequently asked questions about TypeScript.

TypeScript is a programming language that extends JavaScript’s capabilities. It requires static typing, which means it enforces specifying the type of data being used, helping catch errors early in the development process. This feature, along with other tools, elevates code quality and maintainability. In essence, TypeScript fortifies JavaScript, making it more resilient and easier to manage, particularly in complex software projects.

TypeScript shines as the perfect choice for large-scale enterprise web development. It offers a robust framework for crafting high-quality, functional code. Its safety features minimise the risk of common errors, ensuring that the codebase remains reliable and easier to maintain over time. This added layer of quality control and code organisation makes TypeScript an invaluable asset for enterprise-level projects, where precision, scalability and long-term viability are paramount.

As you might expect, it’s hard to say. Development costs for a TypeScript application vary depending on how complex your project is and what kind of features and services you require. We’re always happy to have a no-strings chat to figure out what kind of budget would be sensible for your needs.

Again, it depends. The timeline for creating a bespoke TypeScript solution depends on your project’s scope and complexity. We’ll provide you with a really clear estimate of timelines as early as possible in our working relationship.

Basically, a lot! One of TypeScript’s strengths is its versatility and it can be used to develop a wide range of digital applications, from web and mobile apps to server-side solutions and real-time dashboards. Tell us your dream and we’ll tell you if TypeScript can make it come true.

TypeScript is closely related to JavaScript – it’s actually known as a superset or an extension of JavaScript. It brings extra guardrails to JavaScript’s natural flexibility, requiring static typing and providing enhanced error checking. So while JavaScript is more flexible, using TypeScript means you avoid the need for additional testing to catch errors.

There are a few really good reasons to pick TypeScript over JavaScript. The most important factors are that TypeScript offers improved code quality and error checking, making it a better choice for larger, more complex projects where reliability and maintainability over the long term are crucial.

It all depends on your priorities. TypeScript is often preferred for its enhanced code quality, robustness and reliability, particularly in large or complex projects. But if you want something smaller and more flexible, then JavaScript might be the right choice. We’ll always give you our honest opinion – just ask.
