Very simple node.js utility to install the freshest versions of all the dependencies
in your package.json marked as "*" or "latest", without mutating package.js.
If exists, package.lock will be updated to reflect the latest versions installed.

npm i -g npm-install-star

This will create executable npmstar.

So when you run

$ npmstar

in a project with package.json like this:

  "dependencies": {
    "a": "*",
    "b": "^1.0.0",
    "c": "latest"

it will run (more or less):

npm install --latest --no-save a c

That's it, super simple.
