Usually downloading packages has been pain over corporate networks. One way is to switch to personal network now and then to download packages.
Here is a work around for this, use any proxy server providing your credentials. But thing is everytime I change my password I break my head to finally realize the packages are not downloading because of the old credentials in the proxy settings. This is how I get around this, using Fiddler.
Once you have downloaded fiddler, open fiddler and then under rules menu check
Set using following commands
npm config set proxy http://localhost:8888/ npm config set https-proxy http://localhost:8888/
do this manually, open
C:\Users\<user name>\.npmrc and set proxy to the port fiddler is running on like below
proxy=http://localhost:8888/ https-proxy=http://localhost:8888/ strict-ssl=false
strict-ssl is set to false to ignore certificate validation, Use this with caution there are a lot packages that are malicious.
npm -i <packagename>
C:\Users\<user name>\.m2\settings.xml and add this follwing section in
<proxies> <proxy> <id>optional</id> <active>true</active> <protocol>http</protocol> <host>localhost</host> <port>8888</port> <nonProxyHosts></nonProxyHosts> </proxy> <proxy> <id>optional</id> <active>true</active> <protocol>https</protocol> <host>localhost</host> <port>8888</port> <nonProxyHosts></nonProxyHosts> </proxy> </proxies>
Add this below properties in root folder of
systemProp.http.proxyHost=127.0.0.1 systemProp.http.proxyPort=8888 systemProp.https.proxyHost=127.0.0.1 systemProp.https.proxyPort=8888
Hope this Helps!
