NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
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 radarUnderstand more

Flow is a static type checker for JavaScript that allows you to add type checking across the codebase incrementally. Unlike Typescript, which is a different language, Flow can be added incrementally to an existing JavaScript codebase supporting the 5th, 6th and 7th editions of ECMAScript. We suggest adding Flow to your continuous integration pipeline, starting with the code that concerns you most. Flow adds to the clarity of the code, increases the reliability of refactoring and catches type-related bugs early during the build.
