React Recompose Causing Typescript Error On Props

I have a very basic stateful component where I'm using recompose to add multiple HOC to my component (in my example I only use one for simplicity). For some reason typescript is giving me an error regarding my props going into my component. How can I get rid of this error?

Here's my code:

import * as React from 'react';
import { connect } from 'react-redux';
import { compose } from 'recompose';

interface IStoreState {
  readonly sessionState: {
    authUser: { email: string; }

interface IAccountPageProps { 
  authUser: { email: string } 

const AccountPage = ({ authUser }: IAccountPageProps ) =>
      <h1>Account: {}</h1>

const mapStateToProps = (state: IStoreState) => ({
  authUser: state.sessionState.authUser,

export default compose(

And the error I'm getting is:

Argument of type '({ authUser }: IAccountPageProps) => Element' is not assignable to parameter of type 'ComponentType<{}>'.
  Type '({ authUser }: IAccountPageProps) => Element' is not assignable to type 'StatelessComponent<{}>'.
    Types of parameters '__0' and 'props' are incompatible.
      Type '{ children?: ReactNode; }' is not assignable to type 'IAccountPageProps'.
        Property 'authUser' is missing in type '{ children?: ReactNode; }'.

If I don't use recompose and instead write

export default connect(mapStateToProps)(AccountPage)

I do not get any errors.


  • The typing for compose allows you to specify the type of the resulting component and the type of the component it can be called on, so this will avoid the errors:

    export default compose<IAccountPageProps, {}>(

    Unfortunately, compose does nothing to ensure the type safety or compatibility of the functions handed to it.

    So, for example, this won't generate a typing error even though it is obviously invalid:

    export default compose<IAccountPageProps, {}>(
      () => 'compose typing allows any function'

    It is safer to nest the HOC calls:

    export default
