How to force tsc to ignore node_modules folder?

0 votes

I'm using tsc build tasks. Unfoutunately I'm always getting the same errors from the node modules folder

Executing task: .\node_modules\.bin\tsc.cmd --watch -p .\tsconfig.json <
node_modules/@types/node/index.d.ts(6208,55): error TS2304: Cannot find name 'Map'.
node_modules/@types/node/index.d.ts(6215,55): error TS2304: Cannot find name 'Set'.
node_modules/@types/node/index.d.ts(6219,64): error TS2304: Cannot find name 'Symbol'.
node_modules/@types/node/index.d.ts(6225,59): error TS2304: Cannot find name 'WeakMap'.
node_modules/@types/node/index.d.ts(6226,59): error TS2304: Cannot find name 'WeakSet'.
10:13:18 - Compilation complete. Watching for file changes.

I already added the directory to the ignore at tsconfig.json

{
  "compilerOptions": {
    "target": "es5",
    "module": "commonjs",
    "sourceMap": true,
    "strict": false,
    "noImplicitAny": false,
    "strictPropertyInitialization": false,
    "esModuleInterop": true,
  },
  "include": [
    "src/*"
  ],
  "exclude": [
    "node_modules",
    "./node_modules",
    "./node_modules/*",
    "./node_modules/@types/node/index.d.ts",
  ]
}

What I'm doing wrong? What should I do in order to ignore those errors?

Hello @kartik,

Quickfix is to skip the check

{
  "compilerOptions": {
    "skipLibCheck": true
  },
}

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!!
