(CompileError) undefined function attr/3 (there is no such import)

Why am i receiving compile error?

It’s returning “(CompileError) undefined function attr/3 (there is no such import)” from compilation.

It’s a Core module of heex functions, and i’m trying to use attr/3 macro.

To clarify for other people coming here:

phoenix live view 0.18. introduced the attr feature. Upgrading is not that straightforward but explained here:

You need Elixir v1.14.0+

I think that’s only a requirement for the validation/warnings at compile time, not for 0.18 to work though.
