Disallows the use of require statements except in import statements (no-var-requires)

In other words, the use of forms such as var foo = require("foo") are banned. Instead use ES6 style imports or import foo = require("foo") imports.

Rule Details

Examples of code for this rule:

var foo = require('foo');
const foo = require('foo');
let foo = require('foo');

When Not To Use It

If you don't care about TypeScript module syntax, then you will not need this rule.
