How to fix the “TS7053 Element implicitly has an ‘any’ type” error in TypeScript?

To fix the "TS7053 Element implicitly has an ‘any’ type" error in TypeScript, we can create a type with an index signature that allows any properties to be in the object.

For instance, we write

const myObj: { [index: string]: any } = {};

to set myObj to the { [index: string]: any } type so that the object assigned can have any properties in it.

The { [index: string]: any } type is an object type that allows any string keys as its property name and any value as their values.

The error will then go away since we set myObj to an object literal.
