ASP.NET Core : Add jQuery, Bootstrap, AngularJS Using bower.json

In this blog post we are going to add the jQuery, AngularJS, and bootstrap libraries to our ASP.NET Core application.  Normally we will use NuGet to bring in these libraries but ASP.NET Core gives you the option to use bower to configure the dependencies that you will need on the client-side.

Here are the steps to import the client-side dependencies into our project:

1. First let's make bower.json part of the "NorthwindCafe.Web" project, click on the "Show All Files" icon in solution explorer, then right click on the bower.json file, and then choose "Show in Solution Explorer"

2.  Open the bower.json file the markup should look like this

 "name": "",
 "private": true,
 "dependencies": {

3. Change the markup to look like the following
  "name": "",
  "private": true,
  "dependencies": {
    "bootstrap": "3.3.6",
    "angular": "~1.6.2",
    "jquery": "2.2.3"

4. Save the bower.json file, once the file is saved a folder called "lib" will be created and will contain the bootstrap and AngularJS libraries
