Help with code please im new

gonna preface this by saying i have coded barely in my life.trying to get into it now and i am enjoying it but as soon as i try and use this code it doesnt work. i have no idea why. i assume this is the correct place to ask…

the error in terminal is:

$ node index.js


throw new ERR_REQUIRE_ESM(filename, parentPath, packageJsonPath);


Error [ERR_REQUIRE_ESM]: Must use import to load ES Module: /rbd/pnpm-volume/1ae46c8e-7572-4360-8bc6-f5c7840689da/node_modules/notion-client/build/index.js

require() of ES modules is not supported.

require() of /rbd/pnpm-volume/1ae46c8e-7572-4360-8bc6-f5c7840689da/node_modules/notion-client/build/index.js from /app/index.js is an ES module file as it is a .js file whose nearest parent package.json contains “type”: “module” which defines all .js files in that package scope as ES modules.

Instead rename /rbd/pnpm-volume/1ae46c8e-7572-4360-8bc6-f5c7840689da/node_modules/notion-client/build/index.js to end in .cjs, change the requiring code to use import(), or remove “type”: “module” from /rbd/pnpm-volume/1ae46c8e-7572-4360-8bc6-f5c7840689da/node_modules/notion-client/package.json.

thats the link to my code, thanks in advance for any help

It appears you need to import that module instead of throwing that… I don’t code node so I could be completely wrong.

I basically did a scorch earth and got rid of all the npm packages I had then reinstalled them if that is the correct term in this situation and it managed to work. Now I can actually start to do what I needed to ahaha. Thanks Miles.

I’m glad you got it figured out!
