Local, private, NPM registry.

Our review

What we like

Caches calls to NPM which makes resetting Node projects much faster on subsequent downloads. Particularly good for containerized applications where you regularly prune containers for a fresh dev environment. Runs as a lightweight container. Can override public packages.

What we don't like

Need to be careful how you specify the private registry otherwise it will be written to the package lock and break remote builds/deploys.
