heroku Dependencies Bower dependancy


To automatically install bower and its components, one must

  1. Specify the bower dependency in package.json:

    "dependencies": {
        "bower": "^1.7.9"
  2. Use scripts to execute a postinstall command

    "scripts": {
        "postinstall": "./node_modules/bower/bin/bower install"
  3. Create a .bowerrc file to set the directory for bower_components to install. Otherwise bower_components are installed in root directory.

        "directory" : "app/bower_components"

Now, Heroku automatically executes bower install command after npm install
