Creating a Meteor + Vue + Typescript project that uses Class Style Components

I would like to create a Meteor project that uses Vue and Typescript with Class Style Components like mentioned here. I can get it working correctly using Vue.extend but not Class Style Components.

Here is my original stackoverflow question.

Also I got help with getting it to work using Vue.extends here.

Here are my steps for creating the project.

CMD

meteor create --vue gift-list-app
meteor add typescript
meteor npm install --save-dev @types/meteor
meteor add nathantreid:vue-typescript-babel
meteor npm install --save-dev @babel/plugin-transform-typescript

Update Hello.vue

<template>
  <div>
    <button>Click Me</button>
    <p>You've pressed the button times.</p>
  </div>
</template>

<script lang="ts">
import {Component, Vue} from 'vue-property-decorator'

@Component
export default class Hello extends Vue {
}
</script>

<style scoped>
p {
  font-family: serif;
}
</style>

Add these devDependencies if they are missing

"devDependencies": {
    "@babel/plugin-transform-typescript": "^7.12.1",
    "@types/meteor": "^1.4.67",
    "@babel/core": "^7.4.4",
    "@babel/plugin-syntax-decorators": "^7.2.0",
    "@babel/plugin-syntax-jsx": "^7.2.0",
    "@babel/preset-typescript": "^7.3.3",
    "@babel/plugin-syntax-dynamic-import": "^7.2.0"
}

Error

What is the correct method of setting up a Meteor, Vue, Typescript and Class Style Components project?
