Prop-types is a library used in React applications to document the intended types of properties passed to components. It helps developers catch bugs early by defining the expected data types and shapes of props, making the code more robust and easier to maintain. Prop-types also provide helpful warnings in development mode if the props passed to a component do not match the specified types.

Compared to TypeScript or Flow, Prop-types offer a simpler and more lightweight solution for type checking in React applications. While TypeScript and Flow provide static type checking, Prop-types offer runtime type checking, making it easier to get started with type validation in React projects.
