Note that the app, when installed locally, will display user data from a sample WordPress REST API. However, when deployed and installed as a plugin, it will read its data from the site on which it's installed.
To deploy this as a WordPress plugin, run a build and then copy the following files/folders into a new folder called red-mtg-tz-calc. Zip the resulting folder and import it as a WordPress plugin.
