[Fixed] Running lint fails after installing angular2-notifications


I have created a new Angular4 project using Angular-CLI recently.

The problem I am having is after installing angular2-notifications , I get an error when running the ng lint command.

Error :

Failed to load C:\Users\Gabriel\Documents\GitHub\Go-NoGo\GoNoGo\node_modules\angular2-notifications\tslint.json: Could not find custom rule directory: C:\Users\Gabriel\Documents\GitHub\Go-NoGo\GoNoGo\node_modules\angular2-notifications\node_modules\codelyzer

Stacktrace :

I have turned to Google for this issue, without any luck. I have been to the GitHub repo and had no luck there either.

Then I went in the actual tslint.json file of angular2-notifications package.

I see this at the top :

"rulesDirectory": [

When I remove those 3 lines, the ng lint command works.

My question is, am I missing something here? I need this command to work and I don’t think that modifying the package is an acceptable solution. Is this a bug in the package itself which I should report to them?

Thank you


Exclude node_modules from your lint config in angular-cli.json:

"lint": [
      "project": "src/tsconfig.app.json",
      "exclude": "**/node_modules/**/*"
      "project": "src/tsconfig.spec.json",
      "exclude": "**/node_modules/**/*"
      "project": "e2e/tsconfig.e2e.json",
      "exclude": "**/node_modules/**/*"

The angular2-notifications project obviously shouldn’t break ng lint for users. Still, I suppose it is also somewhat fair to say that a project shouldn’t be trying to lint code that shouldn’t be edited.
