How I learned to stop worrying and love the bower

Project description

The Laughing Robot

Or, how I learned not to rewrite bower in Python.

To answer the first, obvious question:

Why?

To allow Python developers/users access to bower components without requiring a node.js / npm infrastructure.

Very basic usage is implemented:

bower.py install <package> [version]

No dependencies are handled. Versions must be pinned.

INSTALLATION

This will work, preferably installed into a virtualenv:

pip install bower.py
bower.py <command>

This is even more self-contained:

pip install vex
vex -m bower pip install bower.py
vex bower bower.py <command>

Things I Learned About Bower

  1. bower supports git, svn, http static files, but in reality it supports github.com
  2. bower “packages” don’t even need to supply a bower.json
