My intention is to use ArcGis API in a Next JS application. 

I have used `create next app`  to create a simple Next JS application. 

For this exercise, I used the React sample for reference https://github.com/Esri/jsapi-resources/tree/master/esm-samples/jsapi-create-react-app

I ran `postinstall` and copied all the assets into the `./public/asset` folder. 

I copied the codes in `App.js` from the sample into a script called `map.js` in the `pages` folder. Therefore the exported React component (ArcGisMap) should be viewable at localhost:3000/map in my local dev environment. 

I copied the styles from `App.css` from the sample to my `globals.css`

However, I faced this error while loading that page. 


Error [ERR_REQUIRE_ESM]: Must use import to load ES Module: /Users/ming/arcgis-next/my-app/node_modules/@arcgis/core/layers/FeatureLayer.js

require() of ES modules is not supported.

require() of /Users/ming/arcgis-next/my-app/node_modules/@arcgis/core/layers/FeatureLayer.js from /Users/ming/arcgis-next/my-app/.next/server/pages/map.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 FeatureLayer.js to end in .cjs, change the requiring code to use import(), or remove "type": "module" from /Users/ming/arcgis-next/my-app/node_modules/@arcgis/core/package.json.
