The bower team has been working hard, getting new features in the project and closing bugs for users and developers. As of 2016–04–05, bower is version 1.7.9.
My favorite one is the option to have` — save` enabled with every download, as described here 1040, usually when I’m adding a bower dependency I’d like it to be saved on the bower.json, very rarely I would download a package with no project.
Backwards compatibility is important, so by default this is disabled, to enable it add the options “save” and/or “save-exact” to your .bowerrc configuration file.
With save-exact, the version will be persisted to your bower.json, like this:
"angular": "^1.5.3", // version 1.5.3 or newer
"bootstrap": "3.0.0" // always use the exact version 3.0.0
All the new features added this month are:
