To update a Vite 3 project to Vite 4, you can follow these steps:

  1. Update Vite package version: First, update the version of Vite package in your project's package.json file. You can do this by running the following command in your terminal:
1
npm install vite@latest --save-dev


This will update the Vite package to the latest version (Vite 4) in your project.

  1. Update Vite configuration: Vite 4 introduces some changes to the configuration file (vite.config.js). You may need to update your configuration file to accommodate these changes. Check the Vite documentation for any breaking changes or new features introduced in Vite 4 and make the necessary adjustments to your configuration file.
  2. Update plugins and dependencies: If you are using any plugins or dependencies in your project, make sure to check if they are compatible with Vite 4. Update any outdated plugins or dependencies to their latest versions to ensure compatibility with Vite 4.
  3. Test your project: After making the necessary updates, run your project to ensure that everything is working as expected. Check for any errors or warnings in the console and fix them accordingly.


By following these steps, you should be able to successfully update your Vite 3 project to Vite 4.
