PropTypes is a library for type checking in JavaScript applications, particularly in React. It provides a way to define the expected types of props that a component should receive, helping to catch bugs and improve code reliability. PropTypes allows you to specify the expected data types, whether they are required or optional, and even custom validation functions.

Compared to TypeScript, PropTypes is a lightweight and less strict alternative for type checking in JavaScript. It is widely used in React projects and integrates seamlessly with React's component-based architecture. PropTypes helps developers ensure that the correct data is passed to components, improving code maintainability and reducing runtime errors.
