When using the node runtime with TypeScript, is there some special handling concerning the TypeScript compiler flags (e.g.
noImplicitAny
?) I’m using some third-party javascript library which doesn’t provide good type definitions and as I’m only using two methods, I went with a custom
thelib.d.ts
file containing
declare module 'thelib';
This works with
noImplicitAny
in my IDE and on the command line but fails when it is handed over to the pulumi runtime. Not sure if this a Pulumi issue as I would somehow also expect it to fail locally. (i added my d.ts file to the files array and the typeRoots in tsconfig)

What error do you get? You should be able to set compilation flags in
tsconfig.json
. We just load
ts-node
into the Node process to compile-on-module-load
.ts
files. It should be reading the
tsconfig.json
to decide what TypeScript compilation flags to pass.

Error is TS7016 Could not find a declaration file for module ‘mssql’.
works when I do
npx tsc -p tsconfig.json
And to validate, it fails when I remove the content of the
mssql.d.ts
file and issue the same
tsc
command.
tsconfig:
Copy code
{
  "compileOnSave": true,
  "compilerOptions": {
    "strict": true,
    "outDir": "bin",
    "target": "es2016",
    "module": "commonjs",
    "moduleResolution": "node",
    "sourceMap": true,
    "experimentalDecorators": true,
    "pretty": true,
    "noFallthroughCasesInSwitch": true,
    "noImplicitReturns": true,
    "forceConsistentCasingInFileNames": true,
    "typeRoots": [
      "node_modules/@types/",
      "./typings/mssql.d.ts"
    ]
  },
  "files": [
    "index.ts",
    "dummy.ts",
    "typings/mssql.d.ts",
    "mssql-tasks.ts",
    "mssql-serviceuser.ts"
  ]
}
Still wondering if a simple
declare module 'mssql';
should work if I’m using
noImplicitAny
as I’m somehow not defining the types explicitly.
There are also a bunch of typescript github issues related to that topic of
noImplicitAny
and those simple declarations. https://github.com/Microsoft/TypeScript/issues/15031
The long version of the error is:
Copy code
TSError: ⨯ Unable to compile TypeScript:
    mssql-tasks.ts(1,22): error TS7016: Could not find a declaration file for module 'mssql'. '/Users/ajaegle/dev/evals/pulumi-tests/testing-dynamic-provider/node_modules/mssql/index.js' implicitly has an 'any' type.
      Try `npm install @types/mssql` if it exists or add a new declaration (.d.ts) file containing `declare module 'mssql';
It looks like something weird when passing the ts/d.ts files to the runtime and then resulting in the noImplicitAny problem as the module was not declared anywhere.
All right. I somehow screwed up the
typeRoots
which must point to a directory similar to
node_modules/@types
.
With the correct folder structure of the typings folder
typings/<module-name>/<jsfilename>.d.ts
and the following
typeRoots
it works:
Copy code
"typeRoots": [
    "node_modules/@types/",
    "./typings/"
]
What’s the best place to add this to the docs? Is there some JS/TS specific documentation?
