What is Bower?
However, I noticed in production we have had some troubles with keeping our
bower_components folders synced up and just in general another step when checking out code and updating libraries in our Node.js projects.
BowerCDN is a service built on the bower API that installs and maintains permalinks to bower repository content. The project is then backed by CloudFlare. To offer CDN speed and reliability for any of the content offered by the repositories listed in Bower.
How to use BowerCDN
- Visit: http://www.bowercdn.net
- Search for a package such as
jquery, eg: http://bowercdn.net/search?search=jquery
jqueryfrom the list: http://bowercdn.net/package/jquery
- Select a version to use: http://bowercdn.net/package/jquery/2.1.4
- Select URLs for files to use in your application.
Thats it! Now your applications can access nearly any package available for front-end development and load it with the power of a CDN!
