PowerBi-Client NPM v2.22.2 -- ReferenceError: window is not defined (for Wix Integration)

I am trying to embed a Power Bi report in Wix with the following conditions:
1) Embed for Organization (User owns Data)
2) Able to get Azure Token (TokenType.Aad)
3) Able to get Report when calling Power Bi REST API (response 200)

In my Wix code, when I added :

import * as powerbi from 'powerbi-client';


I get an error of  ReferenceError: window is not defined.  Since Wix velo code is a subset version of JavaScript, I gather that wix does not have "window", which is required in PowerBi-Client NPM v2.22.2.   

My question is: 
1) Is there any other way to import PowerBi-Client NPM, but will not require window?
2) Or, is there any otherway I can other way I call powerbi.embed(reportContainer, config)? 
- I replicated every step in the link below except unable to do the last Step5 to embed the report and display it in a container. 


I also understand that there is a react version to PowerBi-Client.  I was told that (i) react version of PowerBi-client does not use "window", and (ii) wix can write react to some degree.  However, as of this moment, this NPM is not yet available on Wix platform.  Thus, unable to try it.
