How to Fix an Attempted Import Error: Switch is Not Exportable From’react-router-dom’

The first step to troubleshooting this issue is to identify the exact version of your react app. If you’re using a version of ReactRouter-dom that’s newer than V6 (which includes the switch keyword), you may encounter this error. In this case, it’s important to downgrade ReactRouter-dom and import Routes instead.

You can also use the Route component to render pathless routes. It matches current location and provides the same props as withRouter. Moreover, you can also make use of the history methods provided by Route. However, this option requires you to understand the React context model. As of React v16, the context API is stable.

Next React Router version 6 does not support the “exact” syntax. However, the official documentation explains that all paths match by default, and trailing * matches more of the URL. In addition, React Router V6 introduced several changes, including a new syntax and a 60% smaller bundle size.
