Typescript path aliases starting with @ take me to node_mdules/@types Follow
I've set up path aliases in both webpack and typescript, but unfortunately, webstorm is not recognising path aliases starting with @; it seems to think they are Definitely Typed types (I think).
The paths setup in my tsconfig.json:
Then in my Vue components:
import FormModal from "@components/common/FormModal"
I get a squiggly under the whole path, and clicking on @components takes me to the node_modules folder.
If I remove the @ from all references, aliases work as expected, and Webstorm can find the folder fine, no warnings, and hyperlinking works.
Can I configure this to work, or do I need to give up on the @ prefix?
I like using @ as it makes it explicit the import is referencing application src.

OK, so I think I solved it with the help of this reply from Elena:
The key thing here seems to be the "/*" at the end of all keys and values:
I also had to go File > Invalidate Caches / Restart...
Think I spoke too soon!
Intelligence for paths using @ seems to be lacking :(
I can type a @ and get autocomplete for the initial aliases...
But complete a single alias, and nothing more:
If I remove the @ from the alias, it seems to get all the paths again:
Can someone from JetBrains explain what is going on?
(Seems like a bug)
It's a known issue unfortunately, please follow https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-30796 for updates
Thanks for putting me out of my misery!
I'll revert to using non-@ paths for now
