Error 'Function called outside component initialization' when calling route.meta()

See original GitHub issue

First of all, congrats for this amazing component.

I’m trying to get route information through route.meta() function inside an Svelte’s onMount(), but I’m getting the follow error message: Function called outside component initialization

I just tried to use example at in a fresh app, but without success.

I’ve added an example in REPL to show the problem (it’s the first page of Svelte quickstart template):

PS.: If I call route.meta() as is in the example, the message changes to Cannot read property 'meta' of undefined.

Anything I’m doing wrong? Or is it a bug?

The solution mentioned here seemed to get router.goto working for me. Example vite.config.js:

export default defineConfig({ 
  optimizeDeps: {
    exclude: ['tinro']
  plugins: [svelte()],

That’s it. I was using a component outside an outer Route.

Thanks, @AlexxNB.
