Fixing Vercel build error with Got using Next.js 13+

Using Got by Sindre Sorhus with Next.js causes a build error on Vercel. The fix is simple.


Are your Vercel builds failing when you're trying to use got by Sindre Sorhus with Next.js 13 or 14?

1error got@14.0.0: The engine "node" is incompatible with this module. Expected version ">=20". Got "18.18.2"
2error Found incompatible module.
4error TS2307: Cannot find module 'got' or its corresponding type declarations.
6import * as got from 'got'
7 ~~~~~

Maybe you've stumbled upon this GitHub issue and looked for a solution but got confused with people's answers.

tsc can't resolve types for got 13 #2267

The fix is pretty simple.

  • Go to your project settings on Vercel
  • Scroll down to the Node.js Version section and select 20.x
  • Add a got.d.ts file to your project's root.
1declare module "got" {
2 import * as got from "got/dist/source";
3 export = got;

That should do the trick. Your Vercel builds will work again.
