Problem Installing Vendor Packages Into MEAN.JS App

I have already installed the vendor libs into bower.json but now am trying to figure out how to link the script and css files to the app.

Is there a console command to automatically insert the package into the app after installing with bower?

Btw, in this case I am trying to add font-awesome but it could be any package really, just trying to find the most efficient way to do it.

Hey Ben,

Here's a link to a 'how to' convo on StackOverflow that might help: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23349959/recommended-way-to-include-bootstrap-library-in-ember-js-ember-cli-app

And some Rails oriented commands for bower that might also help: http://dotwell.io/taking-advantage-of-bower-in-your-rails-4-app/

Cheerios, Kristi

Thanks Kristi, I'll take a look!

Ok just for future reference the CSS and JS files are loaded from config/env/all.js
