ECMAScript is a specification for scripting languages. It was established by ECMA International in order to standardize JavaScript

JavaScript, NodeJs, JScript and ActionScript are some of the implementations of ECMAScript specification. The current version of ECMAScript is called ES8. Major changes to JavaScript were introduced in ES6 and ES5.

TypeScript is a superset of ECMAScript and hence JavaScript. It was created by Microsoft in October 2016. TypeScript is used in the development of large applications. TypeScript files are compiled to JavaScript using a transpiler.
