    Microsoft Application Insights JavaScript SDK - Shims

    Build Status npm version

    Shims for the Application Insights Javascript SDK

    This project exists to break the dependency on the version of tslib that is used during the build and deploy, this is mostly due to several breaking changes that have reduced our ability to publish fixes.

    While the Application Insights JS SDK will use the stubs defined in this packaging for the browser instances (those that are uploaded to the CDN) they are built using the polyfill pattern, so if a global implementation of __extends() and __assign() already exist those versions will be used.

    Global _extends() and __assign() changes - v2.0.0 or greater

    From v2.0.0 or greater the globally defined __extends() and __assign() methods are no longer exposed as global by default.

    If you need to expose the TsLib helpers globally (which occurred by default for v1.x.x) you now will need to import and call the __exposeGlobalTsLib() function.

    import { __exposeGlobalTsLib } from "@microsoft/applicationinsights-shims";
