ERR_MODULE_NOT_FOUND if no .js extension

  eslint, javascript, node.js, typescript

I have a typescript project where I get the ERROR_MODULE_NOT_FOUND 'path/to/compiled/file' when I try to run my compiled app.js file with node. However, I get rid of this error if I add a .js extension to the import statement in my app.js like this import { function } from "./path/file.js"; How do I get the typescript compiler to automatically add these .js extensions? Alternatively, get node to work without the .js extensions?

My tsconfig.json looks like this:

{
    "compilerOptions": {
        "module": "esnext",
        "target": "es5",
        "noImplicitReturns": true,
        "noUnusedLocals": true,
        "outDir": "dist",
        "sourceMap": true,
        "moduleResolution": "node",
        "esModuleInterop": true,
        "isolatedModules": true,
        "resolveJsonModule": true,
        "typeRoots": ["./src/types", "node_modules/@types"],
        "baseUrl": "./src",
        "paths": {
            "types": ["types"],
            "types/*": ["types/*"],
            "@data/*": ["data/*"],
            "@execute/*": ["execute/*"],
            "@indicators/*": ["indicators/*"],
            "@services/*": ["services/*"],
            "@strategies/*": ["strategies/*"],
            "*": ["node_modules/*"]
        }
    },
    "compileOnSave": true,
    "include": ["src", "test", "dist"],
    "exlude": ["src/types"]
}
