Local Repository

We have our own private Nexus repository serving up all of our own npm packages and those from the internet in a proxy repository. We do find we are doing npm installs quite a lot. I don’t fully know what npm is actually doing, but it would be great if all of our own npm package that could be located locally on the server and it just pulls that into the node modules without having to extract or process it as much. Is this an option?

It is mainly because our npm packages are shared amongst our other npm packages. So it would be great if they could all just grab them from the same place rather than creating their own versions. Essentially like sym-linking them.
