Having an 'SyntaxError: Unexpected token 'export' Issue with my Electron-Ionic Application


//Having this issue and I don’t know how to solve it:

Uncaught C:\Users\Zac\ionic_projects\robot-backup-4\node_modules\@ionic\core\components\index.js:4
export { setAssetPath, setPlatformOptions } from '@stencil/core/internal/client';

SyntaxError: Unexpected token 'export'

This is currently effecting all my ionic electron projects that I make. My projects were working fine before I started having this issue.

I tried to get some information but couldn’t find much on the internet. Tried looking at the stencils.config.ts file but couldn’t find it. I also tried upgrading to a different version of stencils.

my epxressjs server isn’t running when I run:
"npx cap open @capacitor-community/electron"


I figured it out, it turns out it was a module require import that wasn’t supposed to be in my backend server. I’m still fairly new to javascript and react so I wasn’t sure where to find it because the runtime error wasn’t very clear.
