Type Aliases

A Type Alias in TypeScript allows you to create a new name for a type.

Here’s an example:

type Name = string;
type Age = number;
type User = { name: Name; age: Age };

const user: User = { name: 'John', age: 30 };

In the example above, Name and Age are type aliases for string and number respectively. And User is a type alias for an object with properties name of type Name and age of type Age.
