I have encountered very interesting problem during update from Phoenix 1.5 to Phoenix 1.6.
Our phoenix 1.5 app already used LiveView version 0.17.6 and we had esbuild / heex in place (and we’re using Tailwind), and everything works just fine when I have Phoenix up to 1.15.13. As soon as I update to Phoenix 1.16.0 (minor version does not matter) I am getting the following error in the browser (LiveView connection establishes successfully on the server side).
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading 'el') at LiveSocket.replaceMain (VM38:6152:62) at VM38:6510:14 at LiveSocket.withPageLoading (VM38:6490:25) at LiveSocket.historyRedirect (VM38:6509:12) at View.onLiveRedirect (VM38:5377:23) at finish (VM38:5489:20) at Object.callback (VM38:5502:13) at VM38:1947:73 at Array.forEach (<anonymous>) at Push.matchReceive (VM38:1947:56)
From my debugging session I do see that
this.main is always
Elixir version: 1.13
OS: MacOS Ventura / Linux
To be frank, I am out of ideas, because the whole setup looks correct and I am getting the very same problem with brand new Phoenix 1.6 project.
