have used sanity on a few projects, but this is the first project im using it on where I have made the gatsby core files ts (gatsby-node etc) I get this error when adding

ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/Users/isaacmartin/Documents/code/tm-landing/web/node_modules/gatsby-source-sanity/src/gatsby-node.ts'

anyone seen this before?

Hi Isaac, could you try removing your
folder and `yarn.lock`/`package-lock.json` files before running
npm install
to see if that changes anything?

hey peter, yeah still the same issue

worth noting as well removing the plugin from config array means the error is no longer there as expected (but we obviously can't source data then)

also manually moving the gatsby-node.ts into a src directory in
silences the error but it then doesn't source any data

Wonder if there needs to be a flag or something in the plugin if using TS to resolve correctly?

Not sure why this is not getting picked up correctly. I’ll ask internally as well to see if someone better versed than me in TS knows why this could be happening 🙂

I've converted gatsby core-files to ts in a project I'm working on, works like a charm. Maybe our code could be of some help to you (tho there will be norwegian comments 😛): https://github.com/navikt/dp-faktasider-frontend

- did you ever see this error message?
Jul 20, 2020, 1:19 PM

must be something else going on
Jul 20, 2020, 1:56 PM
Do you have any public/private repo you could share in this case (in DM if you prefer)?
Jul 20, 2020, 1:57 PM
Update - resolved. not related to ts. I had a spelling mistake in my env variable name
Jul 20, 2020, 4:13 PM
Might need the error message to be updated to say thats the reason its not working
Jul 20, 2020, 4:13 PM
Indeed, no way to know that through the error message 🙂 Happy you can move ahead with TS!
