Can't use Bower to install Angular2

    Question

  • How can I install Angular2 using Bower in Visual Studio?

    The Manage Bower Packages wizard doesn't show any 2.0.0 alpha version to me, even when I check the "Include prerelease" checkbox:

  • Hi BetterToday,

    Long time no see you:)

    To really repro this issue, could you share me the detailed steps? For example, which kind of app did you create? How can I get the Manage Bower Packages wizard as yours? You use the VS2015, am I right?

    I also did some research about this issue, it seems that it is the same issue as this one in the Github.

    https://github.com/angular/angular/issues/4018

    Is it the same issue? If it is the same issue, it would have a limitation for this issue.

    My suggestion is that you could share me the detailed steps to repro this issue, so I could test it in my side. If we make sure that it is the product limitation, we can add a feature request here:

    http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio.
    You know that the Visual Studio product team is listening to user voice there.

    Update:

    I think I could repro this issue in the web app.

    So submit a feature request would be better for this issue. Thanks for your feedback for the VS product, BetterToday:)

  • Hi Jack,

    how are you?

    Yes, that's the solution. Thank you very much for providing me with this.

    So the Angular team has deprecated Bower in favor of NPM. Then I'll use NPM instead.

    Thanks a lot!

    Cheers,
    Axel
