TypeScript Utility Methods

Here are a collection of useful TypeScript utility methods. I frequently use these utility methods in my Angular project work and I hope you find it useful as well. You can suggest any useful TypeScript utility methods in the comment section so that I can add it to this list.
Note that each method is a static method so you can access each method with a class name like:
Utils.isObject(null);
Utils.checkEmptyObject("");
For more explanation, please refer comments on each method would be self-descriptive.
