IConfigFile.extends property

Optionally specifies another JSON config file that this file extends from. This provides a way for standard settings to be shared across multiple projects.

Signature:

extends?: string;

Remarks

If the path starts with ./ or ../, the path is resolved relative to the folder of the file that contains the extends field. Otherwise, the first path segment is interpreted as an NPM package name, and will be resolved using NodeJS require().
