AngularJS Question

No angular.d.ts file with Tour of Heroes Angular 2 project

I am trying the Tour of Heroes tutorial for Angular 2. The problem is after running 'npm install' with configuration as below there is no angular.d.ts file Consequently I can't import. Am I using wrong versions of any dependencies?

import {bootstrap, CORE_DIRECTIVES, FORM_DIRECTIVES, OnInit} from 'angular2/angular2';


"name": "angular",
"version": "1.0.0",
"scripts": {
"tsc": "tsc",
"tsc:w": "tsc -w",
"lite": "lite-server",
"start": "concurrent \"npm run tsc:w\" \"npm run lite\" "
"license": "ISC",
"dependencies": {
"angular2": "2.0.0-beta.0",
"systemjs": "0.19.6",
"es6-promise": "^3.0.2",
"es6-shim": "^0.33.3",
"reflect-metadata": "0.1.2",
"rxjs": "5.0.0-beta.0",
"zone.js": "0.5.10"
"devDependencies": {
"concurrently": "^1.0.0",
"lite-server": "^1.3.1",
"typescript": "^1.7.3"

My tsconfig.json

"compilerOptions": {
"target": "ES5",
"module": "system",
"moduleResolution": "node",
"sourceMap": true,
"emitDecoratorMetadata": true,
"experimentalDecorators": true,
"removeComments": false,
"noImplicitAny": false
"exclude": ["node_modules"]


List of all Imports updated to angular2 beta0.0

import {Component, View, Directive, Input, Output, Inject, Injectable, provide} from 'angular2/core'; 

import {bootstrap} from 'angular2/platform/browser';

import {CORE_DIRECTIVES, FORM_DIRECTIVES, NgClass, NgIf  NgForm, Control, ControlGroup, FormBuilder, Validators} from 'angular2/common';

import {RouteConfig, ROUTER_DIRECTIVES, ROUTER_PROVIDERS, Router, LocationStrategy, HashLocationStrategy} from 'angular2/router';

import {Http, HTTP_PROVIDERS, RequestOptions, Headers, Request, RequestMethod} from 'angular2/http'

if i add some more detail to this answer then FORM_DIRECTIVES includes following directives:

NgControlName, NgControlGroup, NgFormControl, NgModel, NgFormModel, NgForm, NgSelectOption, DefaultValueAccessor, CheckboxControlValueAccessor, SelectControlValueAccessor, NgRequiredValidator
