Fix editor error when importing a local JSON file

Updated: 2018-11-18

HT @marciplan.

In our code components or code overrides, we can import a json file like so:

import * as rows from './rows.json'

This works, but we'll get an error in the editor:

import error

To fix it:

  1. open the Project Folder
  2. open the tsconfig.json file
  3. add the highlighted line below and restart Visual Studio Code:
  "compilerOptions": {
    "target": "es2015",
    "lib": ["es2015", "dom"],
    "module": "commonjs",
    "jsx": "react",
    "outDir": "build",
"resolveJsonModule": true,
"sourceMap": false, "declaration": false }, "exclude": ["node_modules", "build"] }
