React hydrate TypeError: __webpack_require__.i(...) is not a function

memnonila Source

I am getting a webpack TypeError when trying to use hydrate() in index.js. The error is not seen when I use ReactDOM.render() instead of hydrate and I am using hydrate for server side rendering.


import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM, { hydrate } from 'react-dom';
import { Provider } from 'react-redux';
import App from './App';
import store from './store/configureStore';

  <Provider store={store}>
    <App />

hydrate method is available in React 16(react-dom v16).
You are trying to access it from React 15(react-dom v15.6.1). This method is not available in React 15.
Update your react-dom to version to 16 and it should work fine.
