  1. The one with fetch throws this error:
    Error [ERR_REQUIRE_ESM]: Must use import to load ES Module: /xxx/node_modules/node-fetch/src/index.js
    require() of ES modules is not supported.
    require() of /xxx/node_modules/node-fetch/src/index.js from /xxx/index.js is an ES module file as it is a .js file whose nearest parent package.json contains “type”: “module” which defines all .js files in that package scope as ES modules.
    Instead rename /xx/node_modules/node-fetch/src/index.js to end in .cjs, change the requiring code to use import(), or remove “type”: “module” from /xxx/node_modules/node-fetch/package.json.
