Node.js Question

how to use @types/node in node application

I am working in VSCode on Ubuntu 16.04. I've created node project using below commads:

npm init
tsc --init

I've created a new file called index.ts. I'm trying to use fs and readling to read file contents. but when I am writing below lines of code at the top of index.d.ts:

import fs = require('fs');
import readline = require('readline');

I'm getting below error:
can not find module 'fs' and can not find module 'readline'

even process is not found.
I've installed typings of node from here using below command:

sudo npm install @types/node -global --save

Can anyone please help me how to resolve this error?

For typescript 1.8, it might be better to typings to install the node types. For detail see the quickstart at
