Using external library in Ionic - blue-button

Hi guys,

This might be a very basic problem but I am new to Ionic so please bear with me.

So the problem is -

How can I use following npm library in ionic?

Tried this but no success - import blue_button from ‘blue-button’

It says -

[ts]
Could not find a declaration file for module ‘blue-button’. ‘Parser/node_modules/blue-button/index.js’ implicitly has an ‘any’ type.
Try npm install @types/blue-button if it exists or add a new declaration (.d.ts) file containing declare module 'blue-button';

But above steps also gives an error and does not help.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Try declare let bluebutton and see if that works.

Blue button can the name of the module.

I fixed this by following below steps -

npm i @types/node

then add following lines in tsconfig.json file

“compilerOptions”: {
“types”: [ “node” ],
“typeRoots”: [ “node_modules/@types” ]
}
This fixed the issue for me.
If there is any better alternative then please suggest.

Thanks.
