NPM Setting corporate Proxy

If you work at any mid-large sized corporation, you are most likely working behind a proxy. In order to build your node projects, you have to set proxy for npm to make requests through.

npm config set proxy http://your.company.proxy.com:8080/  
npm config set https-proxy https://your.company.proxy.com:8080/  
npm config set strict-ssl false

The first two set the http and https proxies, while the last command turns the strict ssl off.
