Spread the love

To extend TypeScript global object in Node.js, we can add a type definition file that extends the Global interface in the NodeJS module.

For instance, we write

declare module NodeJS {
  interface Global {
    foo: any;
  }
}

in a .d.ts file in our Node TypeScript project to add the foo property into the Global interface.

Then we can use the variable without compiler errors by using global.foo.
