Learn TypeScript by building a Reddit Api Client

TypeScript is seeing increasing adoption across the developer community. According to the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2022 TypeScript ranks 3rd as the ‘Most Wanted’ programming language by developers.

It’s time for me to get up to speed and considering TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript the learning curve should be OK for me!

The best way to learn is to do right? With that in mind I’ve started a project to build a TypeScript Reddit Api Client. It’s pretty simple. You install the npm module and you can use it to interact with the Reddit API.

Now there is an official Reddit node module which last time I looked was written with JavaScript. So why not create a TypeScript version for learning?

Variety is the spice of life.
