Bower Integration

We finished our bower integration! Yeah πŸ™‚ So many of you requested this integration and now it’s done. Now I will get a bit fewer emails per week πŸ™‚

BowerJS Bird

Through the bower integration we have now additional 5K+ JavaScript and 500+ CSS libraries on VersionEye, you can follow. Check out the JavaScript page to see the most followed libraries. Currently jquery-mobile, jquery and backbone are the most followed JavaScript libraries.

Thanks to Bower we can now show dependencies on the JavaScript pages. Just like for Ruby, PHP, NodeJSΒ and other languages. Beside the dependencies we show you some bower code snippets and a download link.

And since we have the dependencies now, we can display dependency badges for JavaScript libraries too πŸ™‚

dep_up-to-date dep_out-of-date dep_none

I’m looking forward to see them on the README pages on GitHub πŸ™‚

Beside the follow feature VersionEye can actively monitor your bower.json file on GitHub and notify you about out-dated dependencies. In the login area just navigate to the repository and turn on the switch beside the package file.

Just turn it on and you will receive an email notification as soon their are updates available for your bower.json file. Stay passive & up-to-date πŸ˜‰

The bower integration is kind of new. If you see anything that doesn’t seems to be OK, then just contact me on twitter or submit a message via the contact form at VersionEye.

  1. Nice job. Thanks for the integration. Bower certainly is a tool not very well distributed between developers but rather efficient and in the environment of a growing JavaScript space a great assistant for the upcoming years. Its influence will match Bundler’s in a couple of months. Looking forward to see more and more libraries on your page
