Bower is an open-source Java based package repository. A Bower feed is a registry for Bower packages hosted in ProGet. These packages are accessible using the standard Bower command-line tool, and are also browsable from the ProGet web application.
A Bower feed may be configured from the Feed Administration page by clicking on the Edit Properties button. Following is a description of the options available.
The feed name uniquely identifies the feed in ProGet. The feed name will also be used as part of the npm repository URL for the feed, so it is best to avoid characters that must be URL encoded, since users may need to type this URL in manually when configuring Bower.
The feed description is optional, and is not used by ProGet at all. It is merely displayed on the feed page and can contain any text.
When set, the feed is considered active. Feeds that are active can be used and browsed using the web interface. A feed that is not active will be unavailable and hidden from the UI everywhere except for in the feed administration section.
