When Bower install doesn’t work

October 30, 2015

If you have a bower.json file, and running bower install from the same directory appears to download packages, but not actually put them in your project directory or even create a bower_components folder, check the version number of your package inside bower.json. Sometimes a version number of 0.0.0 prevents packages from installing, but setting the version number to 0.0.1 will make it work.
