The name of the folder that TypeScript should be treat as the root directory when building your project

Default Value



The value of this config is assigned to the compilerOptions.rootDir property in your tsconfig-build.json file.

If you decide to change this value, follow these guidelines:

  1. You must also update your paths.ts-build-exclude-paths value
  2. You must not use a name that collides with an existing directory in your project, such as dist/ or tests/
  3. You should use a descriptive name such as ts/ to indicates that the folder contains your TypeScript source code

Example Update

$ hats config paths.ts-build-root-dir-path "ts/"
