Web Document Viewer – Bower package

Since lately we have introduced NuGet packages for our Web Document Viewer component we have worked out another scenario of separating frontend and backend development. There are special package managers to deliver frontend components only.

Motivation

Since lately we have introduced NuGet packages for our Web Document Viewer component we have worked out another scenario of separating frontend and backend development. There are special package managers to deliver frontend components only. We have looked into them and chosen Bower. Therefore we created a new package for introducing the ability to manage our viewer as a standard frontend web component.

Introduction

Bower is a package manager for frontend dependencies. Bower has a cross-platform support and can be used outside .Net projects.

The Web Document Viewer component is included in our main product DotImage and the files distributed in the Bower package are also available as a part of DotImage standalone installation, as well as they can be obtained from the NuGet package. But as soon as we speak about cross-platform frontend development we need to use frontend-specific package, i.e. supported by Bower.

In this article we are going to step through a simple application creation using our new Bower package called web-document-viewer.
