Typescript in a react app?


I’m doing the React course, because we will soon build a web app to move one of our legacy(desktop) app to a web app. We plan to have 18 months of dev(with 5 people) for the first version and we know there will be a lot of work after that.

So we want to start on good bases for a big app. For what I know, typescript could be a good candidate to help us with such codebase? But unfortunately the course doesn’t say anything about potential downside of using typescript(with react I mean). Any risks it gets deprecated? Except being a bit more verbose/strict, any thing I should be worried about?
