Compatibility Issue between React 18 and @amityco/ui-kit Package

Dear Amity Support Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am currently facing an issue related to the compatibility between React 18 and the @amityco/ui-kit package. I would appreciate your assistance in resolving this matter.

When using React 18.0.2 with the @amityco/ui-kit package, I encounter the following error:

I have verified that this issue is specific to React 18.0.2 because when I use React 17.0.2, the code works perfectly fine without any errors.

Hello, thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will pass this on to our development team to further check. May I know your current uikit version please?

Regarding React 18, we have tested it with our open-source UI kit and encountered no issues. Based on our experience, we highly recommend transitioning to the open-source UI kit as it offers greater flexibility for customization. It will provide you with more options and control over the design and implementation of your project.

@zaid Can you try run the react app with node v16? There might be conflicts with the node v18

I am already use node v “16.16.0”

Hey @zaid

Thank you for reaching out. Could you give me some details as to when this error occurs please. During build / watch. Or just running the react application?

Also, any other details like the ui-kit version or any other packages would be helpful. I tried to reproduce this issue on my end but have been unsuccessful so far. These are the version I’ve tried so far, that seems to work.

Node: 16
React: 18.2.0 (as ui-kit uses the same version)
React-dom: 18.2.0

Would you happen to know which tag name is referred to in the error?

If you could provide a code-sandbox url or something similar I would be able to assist you better.

Kind regards,
