TypeScript Monorepos with Yarn

A tutorial showing how to configure TypeScript to work in a monorepo and building everything with CI/CD.

Hi, thanks so much for the tutorial, I followed it up to yarn tsc --build --force and the build fails right there with error TS2307: Cannot find module 'shared' or its corresponding type declarations. I can’t spot what I did not follow from your example. Anything out you or I might haver left out?

Hi Binh,

I reproduced the problem and tracked it down to the latest yarn version. It seems that the new version (3.1.0) introduced some changes in how it handles PnP dependencies:

"ESM support for PnP uses the experimental loader API and is therefore experimental"

I was able to fix the error by switching to an older version of Yarn:

yarn set version 3.0.1

You may need to clear the whole cache and the pnp file after doing the switch. Let me know if it helps!


thanks for the awesome information.
