bower link feature makes it easy to change & test packages while using it as a dependency in other packages. If you are using Bower, you should be using this.
It helps resolve this common scenario:
- You developed
bower install project-a.
- While working on
project-b, you need to make a change in
Solution: Just tell Bower that the
project-a dependency used in
project-b is located in a symlink location – where you actually checked out
To do this:
bower linkto create a global link for the project
bower link project-ato let Bower know that we should refer to
project-athrough the symlink.
That’s it. Simple & effective.
