I definitely won't go as far as those TypeScript absolutists who refuse to use any package that doesn't come with TS definitions, but surely TypeScript has become a solid staple in my day-to-day job as a tool that alleviates my cognitive load.

It's true that IDEs nowadays can figure out a lot of stuff on their own from plain JavaScript, but TypeScript allows them to run a nice extra mile.

There's also a discussion inside the W3C about replacing IDL with TypeScript when writing specs.

This is closer to where I'm coming from... when referencing articles, or interfaces, TS has pretty much become the more ubiquitous standard.  I'm fine with plain JS, but TS makes things a bit more clear in typical use... especially when explaining certain interfaces and libraries to make return types clear, etc.
