            return <CustomInput defaultValue={defaultValue} inputRef={ref} />
          }
        }
      />
    )
  }

Themes

Please import themes directly from the flatpickr dependency.

Troubleshooting

Help, the Date Picker doesn't have any styling!

In most cases, you should just be able to import 'flatpickr/dist/themes/airbnb.css', but in some cases npm or yarn may install flatpickr in node_modules/react-flatpickr/node_modules/flatpickr. If that happens, removing your node_modules dir and reinstalling should put flatpickr in the root node_modules dir, or you can import from react-flatpickr/node_modules/flatpickr manually.
