Atmosphere packages with typescript definitions?

I’ve converted one of my atmosphere packages to typescript, but I still get this warning:


I’ve put an index.d.ts file in my package folder. Is there a way to get added to node_modules/@types/meteor automatically, or any other way to get it picked up by VS Code automatically so users of the package don’t have to manually install the type definitions?

would also like to hear a solution. @wildhart did you find anything?

Sadly, atmosphere packages don’t support TS type defs yet (not even for built in TS packages like react-meteor-data). You’ll need to add a separate NPM package, maybe in definitely typed, or another npm package.

No, I couldn’t find any solution. I ended up manually copying the definition file into my own @types folder.

Worth raising an issue on Meteor? I found this stale issue: How to declare "meteor.d.ts or index.d.ts" in meteor package? · Issue #10828 · meteor/meteor · GitHub

And this closed issue, but I haven’t had time to digest it yet: [1.3] - How to prevent TypeScript from marking the `meteor/PACKAGE_NAME` imports as error? · Issue #6177 · meteor/meteor · GitHub

would be cool in a meteor-style that if you would add api.use("typescript") (and some tsconfig maybe), it would automatically create a definition file for all exported properties.


I’m having the same annoying problem with mdg:validated-method on Mac. The line:

import { ValidatedMethod } from ‘meteor/mdg:validated-method’;

gets highlighted with an error “Cannot find module ‘meteor/mdg:validated-method’ or its corresponding type declarations.” even though I installed type definitions in the @types/meteor-mdg-validated-method.

This problem persists only with the packages that have a semicolon in their name. What’s worse, copying type definitions to other files with the correct module name “mdg:validated-method” doesn’t work either.

Are there any solutions out there? Thanks a lot!

I had the same problem with percolate:migrations. I have in my project a main meteorDef.d.ts file. Adding the definitions there didn’t help. To solve this, I had to create a file inside my @types/meteor/percolate:migrations.d.ts and everything worked just fine.
