vtkImageStream.newInstance(): global is not defined

Hello all,

I am starting an angular app from scratch. I am taking Paraview-lite as a reference.

I am getting a reference error when just instantiating vtkImageStream.newInstance().

Can you help me understanding what I am doing wrong? Do I have to import another module as well?

So basically my code is doing this:

import vtkImageStream from ‘vtk.js/Sources/IO/Core/ImageStream’;

this.imageStream = vtkImageStream.newInstance();

and I am getting this error:

macro.js:35 Uncaught ReferenceError: global is not defined

Any update on this doubt/problem?
