Here, is the URL of Definitely Typed http://definitelytyped.org/. Once you open the same, it will open the following page.
Here, when you click on >_TSD link, you will land on http://definitelytyped.org/tsd/.
Here, when you search for the desired library, it will list the desired file, which you can then download from here and add the same in project.

With the above change in place, it will produce the result
