So thanks to Luke we have included the latest tag of AeroGear.js in
the Bower registry. This allows app developers to include AeroGear in their projects
easily through that package management system or via other tools like Yeoman.
The issue is our tags include our entire repo and since Bower basis what it includes in
someone's project by what is in the tag, our entire repo gets dropped in the
user's project which I'm sure not too many people will be happy about.
just wanted to point out that it only will pull the tag if specified, but since
our tag and repo are the same at this point it's the same
I noticed that jQuery has a separate repo for Bower so that only the
dist files are included but Luke pointed out that Backbone drops in the whole repo so it
doesn't seem like there is a "standard" yet.
I would vote that we create another repo, aerogear/aerogear-js-bower (or something like
that) so that our users that use Bower can include the files without worrying about
gitignoring our entire repo from the included component.
A separate repo could be good since it will only give them what they need. but if we did
give them the whole repo, then they could do a custom build if they wanted to
