Local hosting node module binaries
We get intermittent problems with prebuilt node-module binaries not downloading from the host repo…most recently bcrypt has been unreliable. We rarely have the correct setup for our dev/build machines to build the binaries locally - so that can also fail.
Is there a recommended way to host binaries locally (within our corporation) rather than relying on someone else’s repo - without needing to bring the whole node-module in-house? Downloading the node_module’s JS always succeeds (i.e. running “npm install” or “npm ci”), it’s only when npm attempts to download the prebuilt binaries that we run into problems.
