Cannot find module 'browserify-shim' - NPM packages

while trying to use some React NPM packages (‘react-input-range’), I get this error While processing files with cosmos:browserify (for target os.osx.x86_64): lib/app.browserify.js: Cannot find module 'browserify-shim' from '/Users/thomasgoldenberg/Desktop/agolo/agolo-finance-clone/packages/npm-container/.npm/package/node_modules/react-input-range'

I am following the official meteor react guidelines for incorporating NPM packages, but this is kind of frustrating. What is the workaround for this? And when / how can we just start using import Package from 'package-name'??
