Bower can't update from beta.5b to beta.6


#1

Bower seems to be unable to update from beta.5b to beta.6. It lists beta.5b as the newest version.

As a workaround I was able to install beta.6 with

bower install ionic#1.0.0-beta.6


#2

Did you check the version of ionic in bower.json?

"devDependencies": {
    "ionic": "driftyco/ionic-bower#1.0.0-beta.6"
  }

#3

Well I don’t want to explicitly specify which version to use. I just want Bower to update to the latest available one.


#4
  • To install the latest stable version, bower install driftyco/ionic-bower
  • To install the latest nightly release, bower install driftyco/ionic-bower#master

In bower.json change

"devDependencies": {
    "ionic": "driftyco/ionic-bower#1.0.0-beta.6"
  }

to

"devDependencies": {
    "ionic": "driftyco/ionic-bower" // or driftyco/ionic-bower#master
  }

And the run bower update

Thanks, that seems to work.
