I am learning to create a gatsby blog website with a YouTube tutorial. I have followed the exact steps as shown in the tutorials. There were errors that were related to graphql query format. which were solved.

I have searched for the error. But all the answers were related to react app. There was no answers related to gatsby. So I was unable to figure out the right way to solve it.

The page loads at local server port 8000. The error comes while clicking the Read more button to see the single post. The error seems to be of React.

Element type is invalid: expected a string (for built-in components) or a class/function (for composite components) but got: undefined. You likely forgot to export your component from the file it’s defined in, or you might have mixed up default and named imports. Check the render method of singlePost.

Here is the codesandbox link: https://codesandbox.io/s/gatsby-starter-hello-world-m685p

singlePost.js

import React from "react"
import { graphql } from "gatsby"
import { MDXRenderer } from "gatsby-plugin-mdx"
import { H1 } from "../elements"
import { Container, Post, FeatureImage, Seo } from "../components"

const singlePost = ({ data }) => {
  const featureImage = data.mdx.frontmatter.featureImage.childImageSharp.fixed

  const seoImage = data.mdx.frontmatter.featureImage.publicURL

  return (
    <Container>
      <Seo
        title={data.mdx.frontmatter.title}
        image={seoImage}
        description={data.mdx.frontmatter.excerpt}
      />
      <FeatureImage fixed={featureImage} />
      <Post>
        <H1 margin="0 0 2rem 0">{data.mdx.frontmatter.title}</H1>
        <MDXRenderer>{data.mdx.body}</MDXRenderer>
      </Post>
    </Container>
  )
}

export default singlePost

export const pageQuery = graphql`
  query SinglePostQuery($id: String!) {
    mdx(id: { eq: $id }) {
      body
      frontmatter {
        date
        excerpt
        slug
        title
        featureImage {
          childImageSharp {
            fixed {
              ...GatsbyImageSharpFixed
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
`

Solution

Your component must be named SinglePost instead of singlePost (notice the capitalization), so:

import React from "react"
import { graphql } from "gatsby"
import { MDXRenderer } from "gatsby-plugin-mdx"
import { H1 } from "../elements"
import { Container, Post, FeatureImage, Seo } from "../components"

const SinglePost = ({ data }) => {
  const featureImage = data.mdx.frontmatter.featureImage.childImageSharp.fixed

  const seoImage = data.mdx.frontmatter.featureImage.publicURL

  return (
    <Container>
      <Seo
        title={data.mdx.frontmatter.title}
        image={seoImage}
        description={data.mdx.frontmatter.excerpt}
      />
      <FeatureImage fixed={featureImage} />
      <Post>
        <H1 margin="0 0 2rem 0">{data.mdx.frontmatter.title}</H1>
        <MDXRenderer>{data.mdx.body}</MDXRenderer>
      </Post>
    </Container>
  )
}

export default singlePost

export const pageQuery = graphql`
  query SinglePostQuery($id: String!) {
    mdx(id: { eq: $id }) {
      body
      frontmatter {
        date
        excerpt
        slug
        title
        featureImage {
          childImageSharp {
            fixed {
              ...GatsbyImageSharpFixed
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }

All React component names must start with a capital letter. Otherwise, it will be treated as a built-in element like a <div> or a <span> (or another HTML tag). In JSX, rendering a component that begins with a lowercase letter compiles down to React.


Outside the scope of the question, check the importation/exportation of the components and it’s naming, because this kind of issue is usually related to that (for future scenarios/issues). If a component is exported as default, it must be imported like:

import DefaultComponent from '../path/to/default/component'

Otherwise, it needs to be imported as:

import { NonDefaultComponent} from '../path/to/non-default/component'
