My typescript configs.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import alanscodelogTsconfigs from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@alanscodelog/tsconfigs';




My typescript configs.

yarn add -D @alanscodelog/tsconfigs \
&& ./node_modules/@alanscodelog/tsconfigs/install.sh

Note: The last command will overwrite tsconfig.json and tsconfig.types.json if it exists.

Manual Setup

cp ./node_modules/@alanscodelog/tsconfigs/copy/tsconfig.json tsconfig.json

or copy this to tsconfig.json.

For generating types:

cp ./node_modules/@alanscodelog/tsconfigs/copy/tsconfig.types.json tsconfig.types.json

or copy this to tsconfig.types.json.

Then add a script to the package.json:

"scripts": {
    "build:types": "npx tsc -p tsconfig.types.json && npx dts-alias -p tsconfig.types.json"

dts-alias is a tiny cli utility I wrote to fix aliases in the generated types. See it for more details.

Search for // TOCONFIGURE comments to find the places the configs should be manually configured before using.

grep "// TOCONFIGURE" tsconfig.json tsconfig.types.json -H -n -A1 --color


  • While it's possible to extend from different configs, e.g. @alanscodelog/tsconfigs/types by placing a tests.json file, typescript doesn't allow extending from multiple configs, so in a project you can't, for example, extend from a modified tsconfig.json and @alanscodelog/tsconfigs/types. That's why the types config is copied instead.
