To build up a site, there are many things that are needed to make it function correctly. Libraries, frameworks, assets, and utilities are just a few of the tools required.
It is necessary that you keep track of all the packages and make sure that they are updated as per the needed versions.
In order to start, you should know that Bower starts working after getting and installing the packages from everywhere. All the track of files is kept by Bower in a manifest file, which goes by the name of Bower.json. How they should be used definitely depends on you. Hooks are provided by Bower in order to facilitate the use of packages in the work flow and tools.
The optimization of Bower is done for the front-end. The multiple packages dependency is shown on a package - jQuery. For example, let’s say Bower will download jQuery only once. This is perceived as a flat dependency graph and it benefits in reducing the load of the page.
Bower installs the correct version of the packages that are needed by the project and never guides the user to its individual build system. This is a way for the developer to introduce libraries such as AMD and CommonJS.

To make sure the available library is installed with Bower, there is a need to register it which can be done by:
