Ionic 2 RC.0 - error ts2307: cannot find module 'crypto-js'


Hello guys,

Someone has managed to import the crypto-js in ionic version 2 RC.0?
I have this problem: error ts2307: cannot find module ‘crypto-js’

Version 11.alpha is running fine.




Solution here;

npm install crypto-js --save
npm install @types/crypto-js

from: import { CryptoJS } from ‘crypto-js’;
to: import * as CryptoJS from ‘crypto-js’;

add file in src project;
declare module ‘crypto-js’;


Do you have a example using AES encrypt? It give me the error that AES is not defined…

I am doing like that

window.localStorage.setItem(“utilizador11”, CryptoJS.AES.encrypt(iUtilizador, “--------”));

And have this error



Resolved by myself!

Changed this

import * as CryptoJS from ‘crypto-js’;


import CryptoJS from ‘crypto-js’;

Now it works!


No problem of import or type, but when I encrypt “haha” with AES, give me “7c4ef905d79f0addb987341fd6f8c89f”.
And when I decypt this Result I obtain nothing !!!

Any help :’( ? Thanks

My code is :

let confidentMsg: string = CryptoJS.AES.encrypt('haha', "password").ciphertext.toString();
console.log('confidentMsg > ', confidentMsg)

let clearMsg: string = CryptoJS.AES.decrypt('7c4ef905d79f0addb987341fd6f8c89f', "password").toString(CryptoJS.enc.Utf8);
console.log('clearMsg > ', clearMsg);

I use only.
let confidentMsg: string = CryptoJS.AES.encrypt(‘haha’, “password”).ciphertext.toString();
console.log('confidentMsg > ', confidentMsg)

let confidentMsg: string = CryptoJS.AES.encrypt(‘haha’, “password”).toString();
console.log('confidentMsg > ', confidentMsg)

can you try.
