Subject [jira] [Created] (RAVE-1100) Introduce Bower
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2014 19:23:09 GMT
Jmeas Pls created RAVE-1100:
-------------------------------

             Summary: Introduce Bower
                 Key: RAVE-1100
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAVE-1100
             Project: Rave
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: rave-portal
            Reporter: Jmeas Pls


The problem:

https://github.com/apache/rave/blob/angular/rave-portal-resources/src/main/webapp/static/script/requireConfig.js#L22-L37

Why is this a problem:

By hardcoding versions we make it more difficult to work with versions of these libraries.
Bower, a client-side package manager, all but gives this to us for free.

Using the ^ and ~ operators we get bug fixes/minor releases for free, and our dependency tree,
no matter how complex, is automatically solved for us. At the moment we're just hoping that
all of these versions play well together.

Better yet, updating our dependencies with Bower is as simple as running `bower update`. To
seal the deal we get great integration with a handful of free services that make our lives
easier like Travis for CI and David to keep track of our dependencies.

Last but not least, we can move dependencies like Bootstrap out of the repo.

https://github.com/apache/rave/tree/angular/rave-portal-resources/src/main/webapp/static/css/bootstrap

because they don't need to be in there.

+1 to add Bower.
