Where we use NPM for managing Node Modules, we use Bower for managing
browser-facing dependencies. Bower is very similar to NPM but instead of using a
package.json file to specify dependencies it uses
We use Bower to manage third party browser-facing dependencies. This means libraries like jQuery, GSAP, and even our own Crowd Libraries.
Installation and Usage
Bower is built ontop of NPM and needs to be installed globally with
npm install -g bower. From there you can use bower just like you would NPM:
bower install package-name --saveto install
package-namefrom the Bower registry and save it to the
bower initto create a
bower install git@...to install a bower pacakge straight from a git repository.
