npm install heroku kafka plugin on Windows 64 bit

If you land here, then you need it absolutely. I used to get stuck with it so I think it’s helpful somehow to you guys out there. Enjoy!

Problem:

Cannot install snappy, a prerequisite for heroku-kafka plugin via npm, which is basically derived from failure of node-gyp rebuild.

Solution:

  1. Create a new C++ project in VS 2015. It will install necessary libraries and sdk for snappy installation
