I am getting an error

ERROR  Cannot start nuxt:  The requested module '@graphql-codegen/plugin-helpers' does not provide an export named 'DetailedError'                                                         12:03:52

I guess it might be because of the recent update to the graphql-code-generator more specifically because of this PR where they have removed the DetailedError

@ShreyAmbesh @boboldehampsink Temporary fix:


This error occurs when the .nuxt directory wasn’t generated prior to running nuxi dev or nuxi prepare, the error is due to to ts-node attempting to load the .nuxt/tsconfig.json file which is extended by the project level tsconfig.json file.

1. Modify tsconfig.json - Recommended approach

Temporarily comment out the line below until the .nuxt directory has been generated.

//    "extends": "./.nuxt/tsconfig.json"

Be sure to remove the comment after the .nuxt directory has been generated.

2. OR Pin Dependencies

Add the following to your package.json file to pin the pertinent dependencies.


  "overrides": {
    "@graphql-codegen/cli": "2.13.4",
    "@graphql-codegen/core": "2.6.2",
    "@graphql-codegen/plugin-helpers": "2.7.1"

For Yarn / Pnpm

  "resolutions": {
    "@graphql-codegen/cli": "2.13.4",
    "@graphql-codegen/core": "2.6.2",
    "@graphql-codegen/plugin-helpers": "2.7.1"

@stlbucket Indeed, this is quite an annoying bug caused by important upstream dependencies that we haven’t been able to get around. As a temporary workaround I might resort to publishing a patched version of the dep to be used solely by this nuxt module that averts this issue.
