overriding Route type when initializing UniversalRouter

See original GitHub issue

I’m having trouble overriding Route type when initializing UniversalRouter:

interface MyRouteType {
  customProperty: any;

const router = new UniversalRouter<MyContextType, MyRouteType>(routes, {
  async resolveRoute(context, params) {
    if (context.route.customProperty) {

My IDE is complaining that customProperty doesn’t exist on context.route

I fixed it like this:, but I’m still new to typescript and I’m not sure if my fix is any good.

Have you tried to add a universal-router.d.ts in your project source root with the following content?

declare module 'universal-router' {
  export interface Route {
    customProperty: any;

Just found an article: TypeScript: Adding Custom Type Definitions for Existing Libraries

Also I will try to find time next week to update PR #183 and release v9, but it is not guaranteed 🤷‍♂️
