Both Cypress with JavaScript and Cypress with TypeScript have their own advantages and disadvantages

Cypress with JavaScript is the most commonly used setup and is well-documented, therefore it is easy to find help and examples online. Cypress is also written in JavaScript, so it is a natural choice for those who are already familiar with the language.

On the other hand, Cypress with TypeScript offers the benefits of type safety, which can make your tests more reliable and easier to maintain. TypeScript’s static type checking can catch errors early, before they occur, making it easier to write and debug your tests. Additionally, TypeScript’s interfaces and classes can help you organize your tests and make them more readable.

Ultimately, the decision of which setup to use will depend on your specific needs and the experience of your team. If your team is already familiar with JavaScript and is comfortable working with it, then Cypress with JavaScript may be the better choice. However, if you want to take advantage of TypeScript’s type safety and other features, then Cypress with TypeScript may be the better choice.

It’s worth noting that Cypress itself is JavaScript, so its TypeScript support is considered as a layer on top of Cypress and it’s not a built-in feature, and there may be some limitations and additional setup required to use Cypress with TypeScript.
