I’ll be real: We have not done a good job of managing the project. Ever since its release, Bower’s management has always been one of its pain-points. There is an ideal that a great open-source project will create a healthy community around it. I’ve come to learn it’s the other way around. In order to best support Bower, we need to foster its community. We want to fix this.
We are looking for contributors. Bower can use your help:
- Fixing bugs and vulnerabilities
- Replying to issues on GitHub
- Writing documentation
- Developing new features
- Championing a product vision and roadmap
By contributing to Bower, you are working on a high-visibility project with tremendous usage.
npm install bower happens 100,000 times a day. Adam has launched a crowdfunding campaign to provide monetary rewards for contributors. (I’ll also throw in a legit t-shirt and some stickers to sweeten the deal.)
Bower is made by people. It’s not just a bird logo. We need to bring people together to keep Bower going. Help us make that happen.
