MDB no longer working as node package

Topic: MDB no longer working as node package

Arnt Oddvar Pedersen pro asked 3 years ago

Hello! I recently decided to upgrade MDB Pro on one of my projects and quickly noticed that it's not loading at all with the latest changes.

Luckily I can always roll back to a different version. See the attached error message: enter image description here

It's a chain of errors that start at line 8630 in your compiled mdb.js file. Commenting out the wrong export and the error message jumps to the Chart.js export, and so on, and so on.

MDB is imported through a vendors.js file, as you can see here: enter image description here

Are you properly execution the module loader? They should be loaded as follows internally; (This is how we do it at my current work location)

-- With dependency

;(function (root, factory) {
  if (typeof define === 'function' && define.amd) {
    define(['jquery'], factory);
  } else if (typeof exports === 'object') {
    module.exports = factory(require('jquery'));
  } else {
    root.YourModule = factory(root.jQuery);

}(this, function (jquery) {
  return {};

-- No dependencies

;(function (root, factory) {
  if (typeof define === 'function' && define.amd) {
  } else if (typeof exports === 'object') {
    module.exports = factory();
  } else {
    root.YourModule = factory();
}(this, function () {
  return {};

-- Support for circular references:

(function (root, factory) {
  if (typeof define === 'function' && define.amd) {
    define(['exports', 'jquery'], factory);
  } else if (typeof exports === 'object') {
    factory(exports, require('jquery'));
  } else {
    factory((root.YourModule = {}), root.jQuery);
}(this, function (exports, jQuery) {
  exports.action = function () {};

I've set-up 2 NPM projects for you guys over at MDB to check out; one using MDB 4.8.11 without issues, and the other using MDB 4.10.0 (with updated paths) and exports import error.

Both projects are using the latest version of Webpack 4 + cli, Babel (core, cli, runtime, transforms, proposal)

I've not got permission from my manager to post these publicly, so send me an email; and I'll send you the projects.
