Issues with import into es6 project

See original GitHub issue

I’ve pulled this into my project from NPM and I’m trying to import it into a webcomponent but

import { humanizeDuration } from 'humanize-duration/humanize-duration.js'; gives an error that there is not export named humanizeDuration

So I tried

import 'humanize-duration/humanize-duration.js'; but this gives an error Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: Cannot set property 'humanizeDuration' of undefined from the following line 1118 code

  humanizeDuration.humanizer = humanizer;

  if (typeof define === 'function' && define.amd) {
    define(function () {
      return humanizeDuration;
  } else if (typeof module !== 'undefined' && module.exports) {
    module.exports = humanizeDuration;
  } else {
    this.humanizeDuration = humanizeDuration;
})(); // eslint-disable-line semi

basically the last line of real code in the above snippet.

Any ideas how to get around it?

Revisiting this, it seems like Node is still working on ES module support. Is anyone aware of the best practices here?

Sindre Sorhus has been moving his packages to pure ESM.
