gulp-bower

Install Bower packages.

gulp-bower

Install Bower packages.

This task is designed for gulp 3.

First, install gulp-bower as a development dependency:

npm install --save-dev gulp-bower

Then, add it to your gulpfile.js:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var bower = require('gulp-bower');
 
gulp.task('bower', function() {
  return bower()
    .pipe(gulp.dest('lib/'))
});

This defaults to the directory configured in ./.bowerrc or to ./bower_components when no .bowerrc could be found.

You can also specify a custom Bower directory:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var bower = require('gulp-bower');
 
gulp.task('bower', function() {
  return bower('./my_bower_components')
    .pipe(gulp.dest('lib/'))
});

To set the current working directory, you must pass in an options object:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var bower = require('gulp-bower');
 
gulp.task('bower', function() {
  return bower({ directory: './my_bower_components', cwd: './myapp' })
    .pipe(gulp.dest('lib/'))
});

By default gulp-bower runs install command for Bower. Using cmd property, you can specify the custom command. (e.g. update)

var bower = require('gulp-bower');
 
gulp.task('bower', function() {
  return bower({ cmd: 'update'});
});
