heroku-buildpack-bower

Installs and caches bower.json dependencies.

Was created for usage in a rails app where we wanted to use straight up bower instead of asset gems as described in this blog post:

Prerequisites

Expects to have a bower executable installed via the nodejs buildpack.

Usage

Use with the multi buildpack: https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-multi.git

Link this repo in your .buildpacks after you have installed nodejs + bower.

Inspiration
