I am receiving an error while trying to use Typescript with my existing expo project.
While following the docs, I created a tsconfig.json file in the project root.
expo start, I am prompted to install the typescript dependencies. However, after these are successfully installed (tick message appears in console:
√ Installed typescript@~4.3.5, @types/react@~17.0.21, @types/react-native@~0.67.6), I receive the following error:
It looks like you're trying to use TypeScript but don't have the required dependencies installed. Please install @types/react by running: yarn add --dev @types/react@~17.0.21 If you're not using TypeScript, please remove the TypeScript files from your project and delete the tsconfig.json. error Command failed with exit code 1.
After following the instructions and running the
yarn add .... command, I keep seeing the same error message.

@types/react on the specific version that Expo requests (
yarn add --dev @email@example.com
