With the next release
r126 TypeScript type declaration files will be moved from the official repository to DefinitelyTyped.
What does that mean for me?
You have to install the following
npm package to restore the typings:
The motivation behind this change is explained in the respective PR at GitHub. The relevant part is:
TypeScript definitions were originally maintained in
DefinitelyTyped but 2 years ago we decided to include them in the repo hoping that it would ensue they would be in sync.
The side effect of that decision was a considerable increase on maintenance burden and made things harder for new contributors too. For the sake of continuity of the project I think it’s best to move them back to DefinitelyTyped (or any other repo interested in maintaining them).
During the 2 years that these files were in the repo I think we did a good job at bringing them in sync but it’s time to delegate the maintenance.
