Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'createElement' of undefined in ReactJs

Dung Do Tien Jul 19 2021 845

I have a small project with ReactJs, I want to create a small calculator and I have some form as below:


    <title>My App</title>

    <div id="myapp"></div>


import { Meteor } from "meteor/meteor";
import React from "react";
import { render } from "react-dom";

import CaculateComponent from "../../ui/App";

Meteor.startup(() => {
  render(<CaculateComponent />, document.getElementById("myapp"));


import { React, Component } from "react";

class CaculateComponent extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {};
  render() {
    return <h1>My caculating app</h1>;

export default CaculateComponent;

When running project I get an error Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'createElement' of undefined.

 TypeError: Cannot read property 'createElement' of undefined

How can I resolve it?

Thanks for any suggestions.

    In App.js you need to command below:

    import { React, Component } from "react";


    import React, { Component } from 'react';

    And it's fixed for you!

    You need to change your tsconfig.json file should contain the following:

      "compilerOptions": {
        "jsx": "react",
        "lib": ["dom", "esnext"],
        "module": "esnext",
        "esModuleInterop": true
      "exclude": ["node_modules"]

    rebuild and run, your issue will be fixed!

    You can try to change

    import React from "react";


    import * as React from 'react';
