Working behind a corporate network can be challenging, as many things do not work "out of the box." A simple command like
npm install might not function properly. Here's how to work through the proxy:
Assuming you've somehow managed to install
node.js on your corporate laptop, locate the
.npmrc file. On Windows, this is typically located at
C:\Users\<your_user_id>\.npmrc, and on a Mac, it's at
Open the file and add the following lines:
npm install again; it should work now!
Here's an additional tip: if you have some dependencies hosted in your corporate internal Nexus npm repository—let's say in the
@npmcorp scope—run the following command to specify the correct registry URL:
npm config set @npmcorp:registry https://your-company-nexus:80/nexus/content/repository/npm-internal
By doing this, you should be able to resolve any "dependency not found" errors. Give it a try!
