Command line utility that retries npm install when NPM fails with npm ERR! cb() never called.

This happens sporadically and has been reported many times:

and still fails.


npm install -g  npm-install-retry


From command-line:

npm-install-retry --wait 500 --attempts 10 -- --production

It has two options wait (defaults to 500) and attempts (default to 10). Everything after -- goes directly to npm.
