Cant import anything in main.js

Hi,

Im creating a project with Sage 9, but am running into a problem:

I cant import anything in main.js. Im getting this error on import ‘jquery’;
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected string

Replacing this by import jQuery from ‘jquery’ results in:
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier

I want to use the jspdf extension, but am not able to in this way. Does anybody know what might cause this? Im getting the same error with a clean Sage install

Sage already imports jQuery:

And this builds fine on a clean install — are you sure nothing has been changed, and that you have ran yarn and yarn build successfully?

What version of Node are you running? Sage 9 is not compat with Node 12 out of the box, but works fine with Node 8, 9, and 10
