AngularJS Question

Angular2 version RC.6 "directives" inside @Componnet Error

I am using Angular2 and have downloaded package.json from official website. When I am trying to use "directives" inside @Component decorator I am getting error.

I have attached my code ERROR:

Argument of type '{ selector: string; template: string; directives: string;
}' is not assignable to parameter of type 'ComponentMetadataType'.

Object literal may only specific known properties, and 'directives' does not
exist in type 'ComponentMetadataType'.
(property) directives: string

This is my code:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { PeopleListComponent } from './people-list/people-list.component';

selector: 'my-app',
template: '<h1>{{ title }}</h1>',
directives: '' //ERROR //NOT ABLE TO RECOGNIZE

export class AppComponent {
title = "My title";

Here is my package.json:

problem is with directives: ''

as its an array it should be directives: [ ]

update: In rc6, you must have @NgModule. In RC6, you have to declare pipes and directives that you are gonna use within @NgModule as shown...

import { PeopleListComponent } from './people-list/people-list.component';

  imports:      [ BrowserModule],
  declarations: [ AppComponent,PeopleListComponent ],  //<----here
  providers:    [],      
  bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ]

You can remove directives:'' from @Component of AppComponent
