"export ‘Metric’ was not found in ‘@superset-ui/core’ (ERROR in ./node_modules/@superset-ui/chart-controls/esm/types.js) Angular/React

I’m new to superset-ui and currently looking to use it in our Angular application, although this issue occurs for React as well.

I just wanted to try out "@superset-ui/legacy-preset-chart-nvd3" components for now. To do that, I followed the usage given in https://github.com/apache-superset/superset-ui/tree/master/plugins/legacy-preset-chart-nvd3.

I tried this with a new generated angular app using the cli. But when I ran my Angular application, I get the following error:

ERROR in ./node_modules/@superset-ui/chart-controls/esm/types.js 1:0-43
"export 'Metric' was not found in '@superset-ui/core'

The same error is also seen for a React app:

Attempted import error: 'Metric' is not exported from '@superset-ui/core'

Following is my app.component.ts.file, where I’m trying to use the component:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { BarChartPlugin } from '@superset-ui/legacy-preset-chart-nvd3';

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss']
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {

  ngOnInit() {
    new BarChartPlugin().configure({ key: 'bar' }).register();

  title = 'my-first-project';
