Error installing Confluence getting started in Mac - Sqlite3

I am being stuck at installing Confluence getting started plug-in in my mac.

Following are the errors related to sqlite3 & node-gyp. Need help.

I'm getting the same error on a Windows machine

Node v9.9.0; npm v5.8.0

Happened during "npm start"

I tried the steps posted here:

npm i sqlite3 --build-from-source=sqlite3

Then ran `npm i` again - and it didn't work - same error.

Looks like a problem with ..\src\ error C2664...

Found a workaround. Apparently, Node v9 is the issue. If you downgrade to Node v8, it should work.
