What are the benefits of Bower?
1. Install tools and libraries with one command line!
2. Instead of tracking the version of libraries on different sites and checking for updates or not, use Bower to do so in the shortest possible time.
3. Offline installation: When a library is installed for the first time, it will be cached and the next time it will use the cache to install the same library and of course the same version, unless the user has explicitly emptied the cache.
4. Install dependent libraries: If a library is dependent on other libraries (such as Twitter Bootstrap dependency on jQuery), dependencies will be installed automatically.
Before installing Bower, the Nodejs and Git tools must be installed on the system.
