Newbie Initialse uppy with pages loaded via ajax

I have uppy v2 working and trying to move to v3 and it seems now that it is script module is causing a problem. I have an index page into which I am loading pages via ajax. In the index page I have

        <script type="module">
            import { Uppy, Dashboard } from '';

as the first script tag after the body.

Then in my ajax page I am trying to init uppy. Note I am not using node as a webserver.

	  const uppy = new Uppy()
  uppy.use(Dashboard, { target: '#uppy', inline: true })

new Uppy is undefined. I dont seem to be able to load the module in the ajax page as get " import declarations may only appear at top level of a module" error. Obvs this is a limitation in my js understanding.
Can someone put me out of my misery.
