TypeScript Question

encountering errors when I try to run angular.io "tour of heroes" final plunk

I downloaded the final plunk for angular.io "tour of heroes" but I'm encountering errors. I'm using the package.json file from the first plunk because a package.json file isn't provided in the final plunk. npm start returns the errors below. This is a fresh install of everything as of tonight. I googled some of these errors and saw a few suggestions which I tried but the errors persist. Any idea how to fix?

Answer

In your tsconfig.json you need to add

"exclude": [
    "node_modules",
    "typings"
]

so it won't try to compile node_modules and typings folders.
