TS2786 ‘Component’ cannot be used as a JSX component

I have a solution, it seems that there are a ton of breaking changes in the 18.0.1 type definitions.

Like you, I could not solve it by rolling back to earlier versions, but investigation lead me to discover that this was because ‘react-router’ among others was bringing in the ‘18.0.1’ version.

to get around this, I added the following to my package.json

  "resolutions": {
    "@types/react": "17.0.14",
    "@types/react-dom": "17.0.14"

Then I cleared my node-modules, and my package cache and then re-ran yarn to pull fresh packages.

The resolutions section is for yarn (which I use). and I think you can use ‘overrides’ instead of ‘resolutions’ if you are using NPM.

npm version should >= 8

and delete package-lock.json before npm i.
