Type gymnastics? TYPE GYMNASTICS?
It's hard to respond to that without a part of my brain blue screening.
Typescript has one of the most beautiful implementations of a type system. Ffs it's turing complete AND has such an easy learning curve.
The ability to express complex scenarios succinctly using types is a feature and not a bug. It's an investment you make which has guaranteed returns. The weird squigglies you write that seem like an occult chant don't need to be weird.
I wish there were enough resources teaching people about how to extract value out of TS rather than simply being at parity with JS, because this situation just feels like a skill issue.
