Using react components from npm in Meteor 1.3

I am trying to use react-gravatar in my project. I did npm install --save react-gravatar. And in my component, I required it by import Gravatar from 'react-gravatar';

But when I try to render the component, I get:

Uncaught Error: Cannot find module 'querystring'

I think it is because querystring is not available on the client side. In a nodejs project, I would just use gulp and reactify to transform my component to make querystring available. How can I do so in Meteor?

I saw instructions on how to use cosmos:browserify from react-in-meteor guide. Does this still apply in Meteor 1.3?
