Easily install Nightly/RC builds of Node using zsh-nvm

If anyone's using zsh-nvm I just added nightly/rc functionality to nvm install. If you update you can do nvm use|install nightly|rc.

% nvm install rc
Downloading and installing node v8.0.0-rc.1...

Now using node v8.0.0-rc.1 (npm v5.0.0-beta.56)
rc -> v8.0.0-rc.1
Clearing mirror cache...
Done!

% node --version
v8.0.0-rc.1

If you're using nvm but you don't wanna use zsh-nvm then you can paste this into your terminal:

NVM_NODEJS_ORG_MIRROR=https://nodejs.org/download/rc/ nvm install node && nvm alias rc "$(node --version)"
nvm ls-remote > /dev/null 2>&1

Enjoy :)
