Disable inlay hints for tests (or allow conditional overrides)

inlay hints

✅ Viability Checklist

My suggestion meets these guidelines:

  • This wouldn’t be a breaking change in existing TypeScript/JavaScript code
  • This wouldn’t change the runtime behavior of existing JavaScript code
  • This could be implemented without emitting different JS based on the types of the expressions
  • This isn’t a runtime feature (e.g. library functionality, non-ECMAScript syntax with JavaScript output, new syntax sugar for JS, etc.)
  • This feature would agree with the rest of TypeScript’s Design Goals.

⭐ Suggestion

I ❤️ the new inlay hints feature. One area where it’s a bit noisy is in tests, though. Even with the literals setting, it shows up for Jest (and similar) test blocks (describe, it, test). Please consider adding a way to override this for certain cases. Thank you!


📃 Motivating Example

As a developer, I want to maximize readability while minimizing noise.

@nmain Then it wouldn’t be the users choice anymore (in case of libraries).
