everything comes at a price, and TypeScript is no exception. Here are some things that could be considered drawbacks or hurdles compared to JavaScript:

1-In order to get the most out of the TypeScript, developers will need to use the type annotations everywhere in their code, which might at times be cumbersome (or perceived as such coming from a dynamic language background). Some effort might be required to write a strongly-typed version of the JavaScript code.

2-TypeScript’s type system, while being more flexible than what is commonly found in mainstream strongly-typed languages, is still not as flexible as JavaScript itself (which to some extent is the point of TypeScript – imposing a strong typing system to make it easier to reason about JavaScript code which is inherently dynamic). Certain commonly used JavaScript patterns, like mixins, can be difficult or clunky to use in TypeScript, though the TS team is working on making those smoother with each release.
