I installed the module, but I’m running into this error on the import line ( Cannot find module '@huggingface/inference'. Did you mean to set the 'moduleResolution' option to 'nodenext', or to add aliases to the 'paths' option? ).
I’m new to typescript, so help would be appreciated! Thanks!
I don’t think you should be running such a complex library in the plugin backend. Better import it to UI and then send results to backend when necessary. It probably won’t work in the backend anyway as it’s a limited environment and not all JS/browser features are available.
Hard to say what could be wrong without knowing your setup. What compiler/bundler are you using and what’s the config?
I’m facing the same error message the like thread opener, no matter with what library (successfully installed using npm) I’m trying to import. When I try to import in the UI instead, the error is: Cannot use import statement outside a module
So what are we to do? How do 3rd party libraries such as dotenv or JSZip to be imported in Figma plugins?
Add type="module" inside the script tag
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.
I think it’s related to the issue I’m trying to handle. I wanted to use an external library like Refractor into the plugin code code.ts. The import it’s not a problem, but when I try to use any method from there it throws always the same error:
But I can use the same library from the UI with no problem. My intention was to avoid sending data back and forth from the plugin to the UI due to all the data manipulation would make sense do it just from the plugin and the outcome will be creating a text layer in Figma. I tried to use other libraries and it happens the same. Is it the expected behaviour @Gleb ? Not using external libraries into the code.ts plugin ?
