AngularJS Question

"bower install" and "bower update" showing error

Here is my bower.json. I pulled my project from Github, bower files was updated on ubuntu 14.04. But after taking a pull. my angular version is showing 1.4.8 in bower.json file. But inside bower_components there is the angular 1.4.14. So I ran "bower update". But it ended showing "ECONFLICT Unable to find suitable version for angular". I tried deleting bower_components and ran bower install, but still same problem comes up. my nodejs version is 6.9.1 and I installed it recently. What should I do now? Please give me a solution.

Also after "npm install" I get these lines, I am confused about it, though its just a warning.something is said about os. asked for 'darwin' but current 'win32'. is that a problem.

npm WARN optional SKIPPING OPTIONAL DEPENDENCY: fsevents@^1.0.0 (node_modules\chokidar\node_modules\fsevents):
npm WARN notsup SKIPPING OPTIONAL DEPENDENCY: Unsupported platform for fsevents@1.0.14: wanted {"os":"darwin","arch":"any"} (current: {"os":"win32","arch":"x64"})
npm WARN gulp-jshint@2.0.2 requires a peer of jshint@2.x but none was installed.

Answer Source

Usually it means, some component requirement is not met. For example angular-mocks version is 1.3.8 has dependency to angular 1.3.8. Try change to something like:

"angular-mocks" : "1.4.8"


From fsevents page:

The FSEvents API in OS X allows applications to register for notifications of changes to a given directory tree.

so it is not applicable if you are running Windows. If you want to run without any notifications:

npm install --no-optional

If bower does not give you prompt to select a software components version, it means bower is able to select it automatically for you. So nothing to worry.
