Typescript: not all files compiled

The weirdest thing is happening. I’m using typescript and not all my typescript files within a single directory are getting compiled, i.e. there’s one director in my source tree where a few of the .ts files are being compiled to .js and the others aren’t.

When I run a simple tsc, all files are compiled, but when I run ‘serverless offline start’, not all files are compiled.

Anybody know how to fix?

Basics of my serverless.yml:

    - src/**/*

    handler: src/graphql.handler
      - http:
          path: graphql
          method: post
          cors: true

  - serverless-plugin-typescript
  - serverless-offline

While i understand this is an old question, this is for anyone who navigates here through the google search. As mentioned in this stack over flow post “serverless-plugin-typescript plugin compiles ts only starting from root files taken from severless functions handlers”
