Node.js Question

Bower Issue: bower_components not created

I've created a bower.json file in my project root but when I run:

$ bower install


I get the following output:

bower not-cached https://github.com/mirceasinteanu/nanoScrollerJS.git#master
bower resolve https://github.com/mirceasinteanu/nanoScrollerJS.git#master

bower EHTTP Status code of 404


No bower_components folder is created and so I get errors when referencing the bower packages.

I am using:

OSX 10.9.5
node v0.12.0
npm v2.5.1
bower v1.3.12
git v1.9.2


I have tried running:

$ npm cache clean


Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer

Do you have a .bowerrc file in your project root?

if not you should create one and than you can follow the tutorial on:

bower.io

if you have this config file could you post it to your question :)
