Bower Power

What is Bower?

A web site is made of lots of things — frameworks, libraries, assets, and utilities. But keeping track of all these libraries and making sure they’re up-to-date can be tricky. Bower manages all these things for you. So, we can call bower to be a package manager for the web.

What bower can do?

Bower can manage components that contain HTML, CSS, JavaScript, fonts or even image files. Bower does not minify code or do anything else – it just installs the right versions of the packages you need and their dependencies.

Getting things done with bower

Installation : Bower is a command line utility, it can be installed easily using npm, the node package manager.

$ npm install -g bower

Searching packages :

$ bower search packagename 

Installing packages :

$ bower install packagename 

Listing packages :

$ bower list

Updating packages :

$ bower update packagename 

Uninstalling packages :

$ bower uninstall packagename 

We can save and install multiple packages using a single command by creating a bower.json file for your package with

$ bower init

Once we have got your bower.json file set up wecan simply execute the bower install command to install all of the packages we have specified in bower.json file.

And that’s the bower power!
