finding i actually really miss i/o being async by default when i have to build stuff in langs that don't have it

javascript is good actually, if it's es2017 with promises, async/await and typescript

@KitRedgrave "typescript"—javascript is good as long as it's not javascript


@impiaaa @KitRedgrave i mean, TypeScript is still very a superset of JavaScript (i.e: the compiler might never be as smart as a Truly Typed Language™️ one) but it adds so much QoL improvements (even more at scale) than unless i absolutely can't for whatever reason, i never want to write JavaScript without TypeScript ever again

@impiaaa @KitRedgrave also +1 async/await is the fucking best, so glad we graduated from the awkward callback spaghetti hell
