Extending type definitions in Sanity using defineType function and defineField with strict: false

Hello friends!Is it possible to extend the type definitions when using the
defineType
function in Sanity? I would for example be interested in having the property
codegen: { required: _true_ }
on field types. I am of course getting typescript errors in vscode when I try to add that property.

For anyone reading this I found the solution. πŸŽ‰
Wrap the field definition in
defineField
(which I guess is best practice anyway). Set
strict: false
as such:

defineField({
  title: 'Title',
  name: 'title',
  type: 'string',
  codegen: { required: true },
  validation: (rule) => rule.required(),
}, {
  strict: false
}),
