Error when reinstalling freeboard node

A while back I installed node-red-contrib-freeboard through the palette manager. Then I uninstalled it also through palette manager after realising the node I wanted wasn't it.

Now I am trying to install it again, but it keeps failing. I can download and install other node packages, but just not this one.

Debug log showed that the node itself was downloaded and the tree built with no problems, but something went funky near the end.

If you look at the nodes github issues there are a number of people with the same issue and also further issues as well.

Given the silence from the author it unfortunately looks as if the author is no longer interested in the nodes
