Usage

Web interface

Convenient way for viewing your packages in a browser. The web interface will only list your private packages, it will not list the public packages if you have a public registry enabled. However, when searching for packages in bower, the public ones will show up just fine.

http://localhost:5678/

Project

Within your project, you will need to create a .bowerrc file containing the URL of your private bower server:

{
  "registry": "http://yourPrivateBowerRepo:5678",
  "timeout": 300000
}

If you are using private bower with server.siteBaseURL option, you need to add the same path the registry url in your .bowerrc file:

Config

{
  "server": {
    "port": 6789,
    "hostName": "yourPrivateBowerRepo",
    "setBaseURL": "/my-private-bower"
  }
}

.bowerrc

{
  "registry": "http://yourPrivateBowerRepo:6789/my-private-bower",
  "timeout": 300000
}

List packages

GET

bower-server:5678/packages

Search packages

or POST

bower-server:5678/packages

or POST

bower-server:5678/packages/<package name>

{ "url": "git://repoPath" }

Register packages

POST

bower-server:5678/packages

[ { "name": "package-name", "url": "git://repoPath" } ]

Remove package

DELETE

bower-server:5678/packages/<package name>

Remove packages

DELETE

["package-name"]

Restart server

POST

Authentication

Authentication can be enabled for the following features:

  • Register package
  • Register packages
  • Remove package
  • Remove packages
  • Restart server

Add Auth-Key header to request.

Auth-Key = password

Log4js configuration

There are two appenders set in the example configuration. You need to remove one of the two if you want to use it. fileDate appender will write the log to a file which will be rotated daily. Console will write the logging to the console in the log4js format. You need to set the replaceConsole to true if you want to write the logging to the log4j appenders. See github.com/nomiddlename/log4js-node for more information

Tips for usage

Server as a service

Use behind proxy

git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://

Calling the API

  • do not forget to set the Content-Type header to application/json
