#StackBounty: #angular #typescript #visual-studio-code #tsconfig #tsconfig-paths VSCode / tslint does not resolve paths in tsconfig.json

Bounty: 100

vscode is somehow not honoring my tsconfig.json (for a couple of weeks now, it has been different. eiter my bad or vscode update…)

"compileOnSave": false,
"compilerOptions": {
    "baseUrl": "./",
    "paths": {
        "@foo-animation/*": [

enter image description here

Respectively in the Problems tab:

Cannot find module ‘@foo-animation/animation-micro’ or its corresponding type declarations. ts(2307)

Regular base paths (like @angular/core) are properly resolved, just my ‘custom’ ones are the problem…

Compiling, Building, Running… all works like a charm. So I believe from an angular/typescript-perspective everything is fine. (Also, my fellow developers using IntelliJ have no issues…) So it seems to boild down to „telling vscode (or tslint within) about it“…. :-/

My tsconfig.json sits in the root-folder of the project. the only thing is, that I use another tsconfig.app.json, which includes above tsconfig.json.

So is there a way to tell vscode (resp. tslint) where to look for it’s tsconfig.json (to encourage parsing those paths) ?

This SO question and this VSCode github issue might be related, but I still don’t know what to do.
