running expo start with SDK 41 destroyed my carefully documented tsconfig.json

is there a less intrusive way?

Hey @retohoehener, sorry to hear this. You can pass the env variable EXPO_NO_TYPESCRIPT_SETUP=1 to the expo start command to prevent this from happening. Would probably be worth creating an alias to avoid having to remember to pass it each time you run expo start.

Cheers,
Adam

Thank you @adamjnav. I solved this by manuall adding

"extends": "expo/tsconfig.base"

Now expo doesn’t touch the file anymore.
