How I solved the >>’ViewPropTypes’ is not exported from ‘react-native-web/dist/index’<< error in ‘react-native-snap-carousel’

Introduction

I couldn’t find the fix for this error anywhere in the react-native-snap-carousel package, and it was really frustrating.

Eventually, I solved it and I hope my quick fix helps other frustrated developers. If you have a better solution, please let me know.

Solution

(1) Install react-style-proptype

(2) Open the following files in the node_modules folder once you’ve installed react-native-snap-carousel:

node_modules\react-native-snap-carousel\src\carousel\Carousel.js

node_modules\react-native-snap-carousel\src\pagination\Pagination.js

node_modules\react-native-snap-carousel\src\pagination\PaginationDot.js

node_modules\react-native-snap-carousel\src\parallaximage\ParallaxImage.js

(3) Import react-style-proptype , as prescribed by the documentation, in each file mentioned above.

(4) Replace all instances of ViewPropTypes ? ViewPropTypes.style : View.propTypes.style with stylePropType.

(5) Delete the ViewPropTypes named import from ‘react-native’

Conclusion

Voila! Hopefully, this works for you too. If this helped, then please leave a like or comment. And once again, if you find a better solution, please let me know.
