Development Tools

Bower, Bootstrap, Rails 4

So, I'm taking another swing at building the RoR app, so it sinks in, and since I last tried BS-3.0.0 has been released.

Looking through various posts and the BS docs it states to use Bower, I've installed it with ease through Rails' gem command.

Though when I run the install command for BS, it creates a new sub-directory and installs the assets and more in that directory, rather than putting all assets in the assets folder.

Any ideas?

Your best bet is to download and put the bootstrap files directly into the assets folder instead of trying to also add bower to the mix.

It's no longer a problem, I just failed to properly setup the assets route in .bashrc/.zshrc

In case anyone else reads this, it's done like this;

{
    "directory": "path/to/folder",
}
