Installation problems

I know that at the moment it's about the basic infrastructure and a work in progress but I tried it out and wanted to give some feedback and have a question about installing.

I got it running using the README on http://localhost:3000/, Chromium was working fine, Firefox showed the layout but in the main area reported "An error occurred" which may have to do with my strong security settings and I noticed that there is a lot loading from other domains going on there.

However, I than tried the production install and run into problems at

npm run start

Not sure if this is just on my system and so I created a question issue instead of a bug issue. See output below

Hi, this is a lack of documentation on my part. The underlying deployment tool (nuxt) has two ways to serve the resulting app, of wich I have only set up one ( I will need to append the current documentation and package.json accordingly
