When attempting to use the Lightning navigation service in my component's base class (.js), I get the following error when functionally testing in the UI:

this[f.NavigationMixin.Navigate] is not a function

I am calling the NavigationMixin function provided by the lightning/navigation module.

I have imported the module:

import { NavigationMixin } from 'lightning/navigation';

And am calling the function as below:

    type: 'standard__recordPage',
    attributes: {
        recordId: this.org.Id,
        objectApiName: 'Account',
        actionName: 'view'

    This is embarrassing, but I'm going to tell you what I did. I did not capitalize the N in NavigationMixin on the import. Hopefully this saves 5 more minutes of searching you still have issues after getting your default class export right. May 1, 2019 at 21:48

Apply the NavigationMixin function to your component’s base class:

export default class MyLwcComponent extends NavigationMixin(LightningElement) {

Hopefully this saves 3 mins of searching for those who (like me) only skimmed the documentation before diving in :)
