Installing Bootstrap 4 to our Cloud9 IDE with Bower

In this recipe, we will see how to install the newest version of Bootstrap 4 using Bower.

Getting ready

Just like the previous recipe, we will make a new project on Cloud9 IDE without cloning a repo.

How to do it...

  1. Install bower using npm:
      npm install -g bower
  1. Verify the bower installation:
      which bower && bower -v


Note that both commands should return some values.

  1. Install Bootstrap 4 alpha 6:
      bower install bootstrap#v4.0.0-alpha.6
  1. Navigate to the bootstrap folder:
      cd && cd workspace/bower_components/bootstrap
  1. Run npm install to install all the dependencies:
      npm install


Note that this will take a while.

  1. Run grunt verbose:
      grunt -v

Now, you can easily reference the dist folder with the necessary styles and scripts for your Bootstrap website to work.
