  1. This error can happen in different cases depending on whether you're working with JavaScript on the server-side with Node.js , or client-side in the browser. There are several reasons behind "Cannot use import statement outside a module" error, and the solution depends on how you call the module or script tag. Add type="module" inside the script tag When working with ECMAScript modules and JavaScript module import statements in the browser, you'll need to explicitly tell the browser that a script is module. To do this, you have to add type="module" onto any ‹script› tags that point to a JavaScript module. Once you do this you can import that module without issues. <script type="module" src="./index.js"></script> If you are working on Node.js or react applications and using import statements instead of require to load the modules, then ensure your package.json has a property "type": "module" as shown below. { // ... "type": "module", // ... }
