Help: Can't do an absolute import of a TypeScript file from a JS file

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: latest
  2. Platforms(ios/android/both): both

When publishing our app, we are encountering an error:

Unable to resolve module `util/ApiClient` from `foobar/middleware/ClientMiddleware.js`: Module `util/ApiClient` does not exist in the Haste module map

This line: import { client } from 'util/ApiClient'; is used inside a Javascript file, and ApiClient is a TS file.

It works fine in development, just fails when building/publishing.

One thing to note: the publish works when explicitly specifying the file extension: import { client } from 'util/ApiClient.ts';
