I am trying to configure typesript to start a node project. I am doing the following steps:
- npm i –save-dev typescript
- npm i –save-dev ts-node
Installing the types definition for node:
- npm i –save-dev @types/node
Adding the typescript configuration file:
- npx tsc –init
Go to my package.json file and update the script:
"build": "npx tsc"
Go to my tsconfig.json file and uncomment the library:
- change: // "lib": , to: "lib": ["ES6"],
- Also change: // "outDir": "./", to a build folder: "outDir": "./build",
- Also uncomment: // "noImplicitAny": true,
Finally go to the end of the file and exclude the node_modules folder (right after the: "compilerOptions"):
- npm run build
I end up with the following error: "node"’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Note that I did verify if the npm Path was added in the Environment Variable.
And also that the npm install is running successfully, and when typing node in the terminal it returns: Welcome to Node.js v14.17.5.
Type ".help" for more information.
I solve this problem in my case by just running following command:-
npm i ts-node nodemon
