TypeError: Cannot read property ‘webpackJsonp’ of undefined

I have a react app (app A), created about 2 years ago using create-react-app, and it’s ejected. The app is exported as a commonjs2 module and shipped in an NPM package, to be used in a next.js project (app B).

Everything went smoothly until I updated some packages in app A, which have some generic components that we use. The error when importing in app B was that window was undefined, probably due to SSR.

I solved this in the webpack configuration of app A by using globalObject: 'this'.

Now when I try to import app A in app B, the error message is:

TypeError: Cannot read property 'webpackJsonp' of undefined

I assume somewhere something is trying to call window['webpackJsonp']?

I’ve already tried changing up the webpackJsonpFunction, but as expected it’ll just try to get a different property of undefined.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Full stack trace:
