Bower is a package manager which comes in handy for web frontend frameworks like foundation, bootstrap, jquerysemantic ui, …

Setup is simple:

Place a bower.json in your project root

  "name": "project-name",
  "version": 0.1,
  "homepage": "",
  "authors": [
    "famoser <>"
  "description": "A project which gets things done",
  "keywords": [
    "project keywords", "another keyword"
  "license": "MIT",
  "ignore": [
  "dependencies": {
    "jquery": "2.2.*",
    "semantic-ui": "*"

Let bower do its magic

bower install

This will download / actualize all dependencies specified in the dependencies node.

You may download the tool, after you have set up npm, simply by executing

npm install bower --save-dev

in your console.
