I've just started working on a small node project that will interface with a MongoDB. However, I cannot seem to get the relevant node modules to import correctly, even though I have installed them correctly via
For example, the following code throws an error, telling me that "express has no default export":
import express from "express";
However, this code works:
const express = require("express");
So my question is, what is the difference in how the import and variable/require methods function? I'd like to fix whatever is plaguing my imports on the project, as it seems likely to cause additional problems down the road.
