npm-install-retry

retry npm install when it fails

Command line utility that retries npm install when NPM fails with npm ERR! cb() never called.

This happens sporadically and has been reported many times:

  • https://github.com/meteor/meteor/issues/1190
  • https://github.com/isaacs/npm/issues/2907
  • https://github.com/isaacs/npm/issues/3269

and still fails.

npm install -g  npm-install-retry

From command-line:

npm-install-retry --wait 500 --attempts 10 -- --production

It has two options wait (defaults to 500) and attempts (default to 10). Everything after -- goes directly to npm.
