Add bower to your INSTALLED_APPS



Use ./ bower_init <app_name> to bootstrap an app with .bowerrc, bower.json and .gitignore. Add your dependencies to bower.json

    "dependencies": {
        "backbone": "1.0.0",
        "underscore": "1.4.4"

Then just run ./ bower_install and it’ll install all the dependencies in all the INSTALLED_APPS apps that has a bower.json. Default install path is static/bower_components/<library>, you can edit .bowerrc to change that.

Use like normal in templates:

{% load staticfiles %}
{% static 'components/bootstrap/bootstrap.js'%}
