This doesn't work for the JavaScript compiled by Typescript either, since the Typescript compiler doesn't rewrite import paths on compile. I ended up switching to Babel with the "Module Resolver" plugin for my Node projects (instead of using tsc) since being able to use path aliases is worth the annoyance of the extra dependency!

Spent several hours trying to configure it for Typescript. A real nightmare!

Did you figure in the end? Otherwise try tsconfig-paths

Can also be done with Babel, JavaScript also.
