Improve the npm install experience: node-gyp-cache

I was tired of the super slow npm install process and the tons of C++ warnings that it results in, so I created node-gyp-cache.

If you’re tired of pages and pages of C++ warnings when you just want to develop a JavaScript project, look no further. node-gyp-cache caches native dependencies for a faster workflow , and silences the compiler output for a happier experience . Additionally, it can improve the performance of your continuous integration builds.

It’s definitely experimental, but I’ve been using it in several computers and it has been working fine for me and a few other people. I wouldn’t recommend to use it in production environments, but for most things it should be safe.

There is installation instructions in the README. Let me know what you think!
