Hello, when I started with ionic, I followed examples and noticed that a lot of people used bower to download 3rd party packages. The advantage is it is easy to download and update.
However, I’ve noticed that bower downloads a lot of non-essential stuff like documents, examples, tutorials, minified and non minified version etc. And when you package for ios/android, all that stuff gets copied into the build directory.
For example, I recently integrated a library called ‘vis’ for timeline charting which has a gob full of examples, docs and other stuff which are many times more the size of the library and I noticed all of it gets sucked in.
So my question is - what do you do? Just use bower and don’t care about the other stuff? Or do you move just the .min.css/.min/js to some other directory and script include from there and leave out the full directory?
