Nextjs Landing Pages - TypeScript Error When Checking For Non-Page Types

6 replies
Last updated: Jul 31, 2022
I am changing the sanity-template-nextjs-landing-pages over to TypeScript.
One of the issues that I cannot resolve in my
file is this:
When checking for non-page types with
if(!data?._type === 'page')
, I get a TS error
This condition will always return 'false' since the types 'boolean' and 'string' have no overlap.
The value of
is always a string and I’m pretty sure
!foo === 'bar'
is the right syntax?
What’s the issue and how do I resolve it?

Until Sanity v3 is closer to an RC (with better TypeScript support), I’m just focusing on the NextJS part of that project.

So you don’t need feedback on this now?

Because I got some TS answers for you :cool_doge:

if (data?._type !== 'page')
It was a bug in the original code and in ts it would always return
casts the string to a
, and
bool === string
will never be true. Removing the
will make it so it compares

Such a simple solution. I never thought of
. That is a simple option and something I could have attempted but never thought of! Thanks so much
