No auto complete for the React-Redux in a React Native App


I've encountered a weird issue. I learn react native and I really appreciate autocompletion feautre. I use TypeScript. 

Autocompletion works for everything I used so far, excluding react-redux. In the screenshot, you can see that whereas functions imported from 'react' (eg useEffect) are highlighed, the {useSelector} isn't highlighed. With CTRL+click I can jump to 'useEffect' function or to 'react' and 'react-redux' files, but I cannot jump to useSelector function.

The thing is, it works. I can run my app via expo on a device and use redux. I've installed 'react-redux' and 'redux' in the same way as other third-parties, with 'yarn add' and 'yarn install'. I've found the useSelector in 'node_modules/react-redux/src/hooks/useSelector.js' so it does exist.

I tried:

  • install it via npm.
  • clean node_modules and install everything from scratch
  • rebuild index and restart

Do you have @types/react-redux installed? Try adding it with npm: npm i @types/react-redux

It worked, thanks. Is there a general rule for that? Should all modules be installed with '@types/....' ?

yes, it's recommended - see

And it's 'must have' when working with Typescript, your code won't compile otherwise
