What is the solution for resolving a conflicting AbortSignal in two different files, namely node_modules/@types/node/globals.d.ts and node_modules/typescript/lib/lib.dom.d.ts, within an Angular project?

One option is to modify one of the files to remove the conflicting signal. Specifically, you can remove the AbortSignal declaration from one of the files.

In this case, you can remove the declaration from either nodemodules/@types/node/globals.d.ts or nodemodules/typescript/lib/lib.dom.d.ts, depending on which file is causing the conflicts.

Alternatively, you can use a workaround as follows:

  1. Create a new file in your project at src/typings/global.d.ts.
  2. Add the following code to the new file:
declare namespace NodeJS {
  interface Global {
    // Workaround for conflicting AbortSignal declarations
    ABORT_SIGNAL: AbortSignal;
  1. In your project's tsconfig.json file, add the following to the compilerOptions:
"skipLibCheck": true,
  1. Use the global ABORT_SIGNAL variable in your code instead of the conflicting AbortSignal declarations from the two different files.

Note that this is just a workaround, and it may not be the best long-term solution. It's recommended to keep an eye on the libraries and versions that you use so that conflicts can be avoided in the first place.
