I have upgraded to Next.js 14, and I'm unable to import createClient from @libsql/client for use with Drizzle ORM.

I'm using the Server Action to fetch data using SWR rather than a mutation, the action imports the following file which creates the DB client and Drizzle client:
import { drizzle } from "drizzle-orm/libsql";
import { createClient } from "@libsql/client";
import * as schema from "./schema";

const client = createClient({
  url: process.env.DATABASE_URL!,
  authToken: process.env.DATABASE_AUTH_TOKEN,

export const db = drizzle(client, { schema });

This results in the following error:

 ⨯ TypeError: (0 , _libsql_client__WEBPACK_IMPORTED_MODULE_0__.createClient) is not a function
    at eval (./src/db/index.ts:11:76)

I'm running using Bun, however the same error appears when using Node (through pnpm), and i've tried on canary aswell.

It worked in Next.js 13.
