This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

We've really enjoyed using TypeScript for a while now and love the safety that the strong typing provides. However, getting data into the bounds of the type system — from, for example, a call to a back-end service — can lead to run-time errors. One library that helps solve this problem is io-ts. It bridges the gap between compile-time type-checking and run-time consumption of external data by providing encode and decode functions. It can also be used as a custom type guard. As we gain more experience with io-ts in our work, our initially positive impressions are confirmed, and we still like the elegance of its approach.
