Nothing per se.  Note that «TypeScript is a strongly typed programming
language that builds on JavaScript» and from my understanding (maybe I
am wrong?), it is hard to package Javascript for Guix because the
Javascript ecosystem is messy.  Janneke provides some explanations [1]
and I am not convinced the situation have changed since then.  Maybe I
am wrong…
