In TypeScript, you can convert the Node module resolution to "fully specified" mode by setting the moduleResolution compiler option to "node" in your tsconfig.json file. This will instruct TypeScript to resolve modules using the Node.js module resolution algorithm, which includes full path resolution.

Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open your tsconfig.json file in the root of your project.

  2. Locate the "compilerOptions" object in the file.

  3. Add the "moduleResolution" option and set it to "node":

{ "compilerOptions": { "moduleResolution": "node", // Other compiler options... }, // Other configurations... }

By setting "moduleResolution": "node", TypeScript will resolve module imports using the Node.js resolution strategy, which includes resolving modules based on their full paths. This is useful when you want to ensure that TypeScript can correctly locate modules installed in different directories.

For example, with "fully specified" mode enabled, you can import modules using their full paths like this:

import { SomeModule } from '@full/path/to/some-module';

Additionally, this mode enables TypeScript to accurately resolve module dependencies when using complex module structures or monorepos with multiple packages.

Remember to recompile your TypeScript code after making changes to the tsconfig.json file. You can do this by running the TypeScript compiler (tsc) or by using a build tool like webpack, if applicable to your project setup.
