  1. Could you gulp build for us?

    This adds another step to the deployment process. And I’m not planning to add gulp just for one dependency.

  2. I too respect your decision to drop bower support. What’s naughty though is that you guys do that without respecting semver. Many bower based projects use the semver range ^2.x.x, expecting braking changes to occur in major version changes only. Now many bower based projects install version 2.2.x with the braking change of not having build files.

  3. In file “bower.json” we have:

      "name": "chart.js",
      "description": "Simple HTML5 charts using the canvas element.",
      "main": "src/chart.js",
      "license": "MIT",
      "homepage": "http://www.chartjs.org",
      "repository": {
        "type": "git",
        "url": "https://github.com/chartjs/Chart.js.git"
      "dependencies": {},
      "devDependencies": {}

    In line:
    "main": "src/chart.js"
    should be:
    "main": "dist/Chart.js"

    Now gulp wiredep work correctly.

  4. We are implementing a new system very soon that should allow full bower implementation, just as it used to be before the recent update.
