Error: Failed to load next.config.js

Good morning! I’m currently building out an integration of React Square Web Payments SDK with NextJS. I’m getting a config error when running npm run dev coming from next.config.js and can’t figure out what’s causing it. I need an extra set of eyes to spot what I’m missing.

/** @type {import('next').NextConfig} */
const withTM = require('next-transpile-modules')(['@square/web-sdk', 'react-square-web-payments-sdk'])

module.exports = withTM({
  reactStrictMode: true,
  experimental: {
    esmExternals: 'loose'

ready - started server on, url: http://localhost:3000
error - Failed to load next.config.js, see more info here next-config-error | Next.js
Error: next-transpile-modules - an unexpected error happened when trying to resolve “@square/web-sdk”. Are you sure the name of the module you are trying to transpile is correct, and it has a package.json with a “main” or an “exports” field?

Have you installed @square/web-sdk in addition to react-square-web-payments-sdk? I’m just thinking this might be the case since it can’t resolve the module.

I think I may have skipped over that in the tutorial video :frowning:

I’ll try that. And add it to my suggestions list :sweat_smile:
