npm's Self-Signed Certificate is No More

A bunch of users received a “SELF_SIGNED_CERT_IN_CHAIN” error during installing and publishing packages throughout the day today. 

The cause: npm no longer supports its self-signed certificates. 

The solution: either

1) upgrade your version of npm

npm install npm -g --ca=null

- or -

2) tell your current version of npm to use known registrars  

npm config set ca=""

Happy noding!
