Describe the bug

Failed to load config from vite.config.js error when starting dev server.
I did see #59 but an error persists.


npm init [email protected] vite-svelte-test --template svelte

cd vite-svelte-test
npm install
npm run dev


failed to load config from /Users/sfm17/software/personal/vite-svelte-test/vite.config.js
error when starting dev server:
import { diff_match_patch, DIFF_DELETE, DIFF_INSERT } from "diff-match-patch";
SyntaxError: The requested module 'diff-match-patch' is expected to be of type CommonJS, which does not support named exports. CommonJS modules can be imported by importing the default export.
For example:
import pkg from 'diff-match-patch';
const { diff_match_patch, DIFF_DELETE, DIFF_INSERT } = pkg;

Can't reproduce with the steps provided.

I notice that you are using an outdated version of node 14 (14.4.0). Please update it and try again.
vite-plugin-svelte requires "node": "^12.20 || ^14.13.1 || >= 16"

If it still fails and you did any modification to the template after creating it, please provide a repository with them.
