angular: Ivy error TS-996002, when using compiled esm5 files

🐞 bug report

Affected Package

The issue is caused by package @angular/cli

Is this a regression?

It only happens when Ivy is enabled - ngcc. With stable ngc AOT build it works fine.


The error occurs when running the ng build command, if the source code imports a module and component from a compiled esm5 file, which has the associated d.ts and metadata.json files.

πŸ”¬ Minimal Reproduction

Can be found here: Running ng build throws the mentioned error.

Anything else relevant?

Found this issue with the same error message, which is closed and fixed, but I’m not sure if it’s the same cause.
