Crypto JS Module Error

I was attempting to add a the crypto-js npm package to my tools Angular app.

I ran this command to install the package:

npm install crypto-js

Everything installed properly, next I tried to add the import package to one of my Angular services using this code:

import CryptoJs from 'crypto-js';

I was met with the following error:

could not find a declaration file for module 'crypto-js'


Change your import statement from this:

import CryptoJs from 'crypto-js';

to this:

import * as CryptoJS from 'crypto-js';

Additional Troubleshooting

If you need type support, install the types for CryptoJs:

npm install @types/crypto-js


I hope this helped you add the crypto-js npm package to your Typescript application.
