With React Router v6 first beta released is it possible to run project with MDBLinks working?

Due to mdbreact included in project react router loaded twice:

─┬ react-router-dom@5.2.0
│   └── react-router@5.2.0 
├── react-router@6.0.0-beta.0 
└─┬ react-router-dom@6.0.0-beta.0

This creates an issue. Is there a solution?

Do you have some console errors with that? Probably the oldest components will not work with the latest version of RRD (v6).

Hello, I have the same problem, is it resolved ?

Wojciech Staniszewski staff commented 2 years ago

It is not resolved and currently, we are focused on developing MDBReact 5. Please try to use React Router v5.

Yes, I'm receiving console error:

You should not use <Link> outside a <Router>

I assume its to do with MDBLink or similar using v5 router.

Piotr Glejzer staff commented 4 years ago

did you try to wrap your component with BrowserRouter from rrd?

Denzil free commented 4 years ago

Yes, the component is wrapped with BrowserRouter.

The issue is, as explained by react team, with React Router component loaded twice: one is as dependency of MDB (v5.02), and second time as project dependency: v6-beta. I have not found a workaround and had to roll back to v5, though I would prefer to stick with 6 as it has so many new useful features, and a lot in there is so obvious, and code is much cleaner and easier to read.

we have to rewrite routing in our app to version 6 so it will be done in the future releases.

Denzil free commented 4 years ago

understood, I had rolled back to v5 time being, please let me know as soon as you have v6 implemented, thanks.

Piotr Glejzer staff commented 4 years ago

We will let you know if we update this.
