Js-ipfs on Windows

Has anybody got js-ipfs working on Windows (10)?
I tried on multiple machines and always get the following result for npm install ipfs

npm ERR! errno 1
npm ERR! sha3@1.2.0 install: `node-gyp rebuild`
npm ERR! Exit status 1
npm ERR!
npm ERR! Failed at the sha3@1.2.0 install script.
npm ERR! This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above.

This is obviously an issue with the sha3 package, there is a bug report https://github.com/phusion/node-sha3/issues/27,
but no solution yet. I’ve got Python 2.7 installed (not 3.x)

I’m asking here because I can’t be the only one wanting to run js-ipfs on Windows.
