Styled Components Resolution in Package.json File

Last updated on 4 Mar, 2023

We are trying to find out why we add resolutions property in package.json file for Styled Components.

You might have seen below code in package.json file:

"resolutions": {
    "styled-components": "^5"

In this specific case, the "resolutions" key is used to specify a particular version of the "styled-components" dependency that the project requires. The "^5" symbol in this example is a version range specifier called a caret range, which means that the project will accept any version of styled-components that is compatible with version 5.0.0 or higher, but less than version 6.0.0.

By including this "resolutions" key with a specific version range, the project is telling the package manager to prioritize using the specified version of styled-components, even if other dependencies require a different version. This can help prevent version conflicts and ensure that the project is using the correct version of the dependency it needs.
