How to install and run Typescript locally in npm

0 votes

I want to install and run Typescript (i.e. no global dependencies).

Here is my package.json file:

{
  "name": "foo",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "description": "",
  "main": "index.js",
  "scripts": {
    "test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1",
    "tsc": "tsc"
  },
  "devDependencies": {
    "typescript": "^1.8.10"
  },
  "author": "",
  "license": "ISC"
}

I then run:

npm install
npm run tsc

However when I run the second command I get sooo many errors it cannot display all it. Most of it is like the following:

../foo/node_modules/typescript/lib/lib.d.ts(5015,5): error TS2300: Duplicate identifier 'webkitTransformOrigin'.
../foo/node_modules/typescript/lib/lib.d.ts(5016,5): error TS2300: Duplicate identifier 'webkitTransformStyle'.
../foo/node_modules/typescript/lib/lib.d.ts(5017,5): error TS2300: Duplicate identifier 'webkitTransition'.
../foo/node_modules/typescript/lib/lib.d.ts(5018,5): error TS2300: Duplicate identifier 'webkitTransitionDelay'.
../foo/node_modules/typescript/lib/lib.d.ts(5019,5): error TS2300: Duplicate identifier 'webkitTransitionDuration'.
../foo/node_modules/typescript/lib/lib.d.ts(5020,5): error TS2300: Duplicate identifier 'webkitTransitionProperty'.

In npm-debug.log I get:

0 info it worked if it ends with ok

23 error If you do, this is most likely a problem with the foo package,
23 error not with npm itself.
23 error Tell the author that this fails on your system:
23 error     tsc
23 error You can get information on how to open an issue for this project with:
23 error     npm bugs foo
23 error Or if that isn't available, you can get their info via:
23 error     npm owner ls foo
23 error There is likely additional logging output above.
24 verbose exit [ 1, true ]

Note that removing the package and then installing typescript globally solves the problem. However if I then use npm install to install the local packages again, it reintroduces the problem.

It took me a while to figure out the solution to this problem - it's in the original question. You need to have a script that calls tsc in your package.json file so that you can run:

npm run tsc 

Include -- before you pass in options (or just include them in the script):

npm run tsc -- -v
