Support for import via es6 import

See original GitHub issue

Is there a way we can import it via npm similar to how react does it?

import React, {Component} from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';

I tried these four and it didn’t work:

import numbro from 'numbro';
import {numbro} from 'numbro';
import * as numbro from 'numbro';
import 'numbro'

I’m having trouble getting this to work in combination with TypeScript and webpack. It might just be an issue with the TypeScript Definition file, though.

When using import numbro from "numbro" or import {default as numbro} from "numbro":

  • IntelliSense says numbro is of type NumbroStatic and numbro(1000) should work
  • At runtime, numbro is undefined

When using import * as numbro from "numbro";:

  • IntelliSense says numbro is the whole module/package (not sure which term to use) with the 3 interfaces and the exported default listed
  • At runtime, numbro is the function defined under Top Level Functions as numbro = function(input) {
  • This code works: return ((numbro as any)(1000) as numbro.Numbro).format("0.0")

Any idea what I’m doing wrong? Or is this a bug in the Definition file?

I use import numbro from 'numbro'; just fine with webpack + babel. What are you using to transpile your ES6?
