  1. Hi i am sorry if this a dumb question, but i am getting a cannot find ‘__PATH_PREFIX__’ in the layout.tsx. Is this something we are supposed to replace with a value, or does gatsby replace this value? When i clone the repo, this value doesnt seem to play well with typescript.

    1. I don’t believe that’s what Yomi is suggesting. You need to change the extension of blog-post.js to .tsx in line 7 of the gatsby-node.js file.

  2. Hey! Great article. Really easy to follow and understand. I managed to get setup and using TypeScript in a matter of minutes.

    Only problem I ran into was the `”type-check”: “tsc –noEmit”` was running checks on `node_modules` even although it was excluded! What fixed it for me was adding `”skipLibCheck”: true` to the `tsconfig.json` under `compilerOptions`.

    “compilerOptions”: {
    “module”: “commonjs”,
    “target”: “esnext”,
    “jsx”: “preserve”,
    “lib”: [“dom”, “esnext”],
    “strict”: true,
    “noEmit”: true,
    “isolatedModules”: true,
    “esModuleInterop”: true,
    “noUnusedLocals”: false,
    “allowJs”: true,
    “skipLibCheck”: true //NEW
    “exclude”: [“node_modules”, “public”, “.cache”]

    Not sure if this will cause further issues down the line, but in the mean time I hope this helps anyone who runs into the same issue!
