I have added this line:
Now my questions are: How are those packages downloaded, if I have not added Bower to the project? How can I add it?
What you need to do is install bower, the requirements are to have node, npm and git installed.
Once the requirements are installed, the command to install bower is the following:
npm install -g bower
Then you can create a bower.json file using the following command:
You must answer the questions to create a custom bower.json file.
After this you can get the angular package with the following command:
bower install angular --save
The –save flag includes the dependency in your newly created
Also you should not reference those files within bower_components directly for many reasons, for example:
- That route has been defined by bower and could change in the future.
- That folder should not be displayed as it contains many possibly unnecessary files.
What you should do is copy the files you need using some task runner like gulp or grunt .
