TypeScript: Interfaces or Types. What’s the Difference?

2022-07-08

In TypeScript, both interfaces and types can be used to define types, but they have different purposes. Interfaces are used to define the structure of object types, while type aliases provide a name for a type definition. Interfaces also allow inheritance, which is not possible with type aliases. On the other hand, type aliases offer a more flexible way to define complex types. This article explores the differences between these two mechanisms and provides examples to help clarify their use cases.
