@glint Directives

Glint has several directives that can be used in template comments to control Glint's behavior. Additional comment text can follow directives to document their purpose. These directives correspond to the similarly-named directives in TypeScript.

@glint directives may only be applied in template comments, not in TypeScript outside of templates.


The @glint-expect-error directive operates similarly to @glint-ignore in that it will not report type errors it encounters, but it will also produce an error when an error is not encountered. This is useful for tests where we expect an invocation not to type-check (e.g. due to bad arguments) and want to be alerted if it does.


<MyComponent @stringArg='foo' />

{{! @glint-expect-error: let me know if this starts allowing numbers }}
<MyComponent @stringArg={{123}} />


The @glint-ignore directive tells Glint to ignore the line that follows it. Glint will not report any errors encountered on the next line. In general, you should prefer @glint-expect-error unless it is not appropriate.


<MyComponent @expectedArg='foo' />

{{! @glint-ignore: this doesn't typecheck in TS 4.6 due to a bug, but we still test against that version in CI }}
<MyComponent @unexpectedArg='bar' />


The @glint-nocheck directive will cause glint to not report errors for the entire template. The template is still processed by Glint such that auto-complete, type look-up, jump to definition, etc. are still functional, but any type errors will be ignored. This can be useful as a step in a migration process.


{{! @glint-nocheck: this whole template needs work }}

<MyComponent @stringArg={{123}} />

<AnotherComponent @badArg='foo' />

{{two-arg-helper 'bar'}}

Note: the auto-glint-nocheck script in the @glint/scripts package can automate the process of adding @glint-nocheck directives at the top of every template with type errors in your project. This allows you to adopt Glint in a project immediately for all new templates while incrementally migrating your existing ones to make them typesafe over time.
