The TypeScript provides data types as a part of its optional type and its provide us some primitive types as well as a dynamic type “any” and this “any” work like “dynamic”.
In TypeScript, we define a variable with a “type” and appending the “variable name” with “colon” followed by the type name i.e.
Number: the “number” is a primitive number type in TypeScript. There is no different type for float or double in TypeScript.
Boolean: The “boolean” type represents true or false condition.
String: The “string” represents sequence of characters similar to C#.
Null: The “null” is a special type which assigns null value to a variable.
Undefined: The “undefined” is also a special type and can be assigned to any variable.
Any : this data type is the super type of all types in TypeScript. It is also known as dynamic type and using “any” type is equivalent to opting out of type checking for a variable.
