Hi, great project! <3

I'm having trouble in the npm install step. Seems like a broken 404 url. I tried the react version in my machine and it works, so I don't think this is an error related to the system requirements...

Hi Graciano. Thanks for your note. I looked into it and it appears that this problem exists in both the vue and the react versions. However, it appears that we can still use the library by ignoring this error.
In case that was the blocker for you, I think you can still create apps. Meanwhile, I'll try taking a look at why this is happening :D
