Edit (April 2014): Updated by @paulirish & @sheerun

Package unregistering will be available via bower unregister <package> soon, but for now, you can unregister packages yourself using curl, if the package is hosted on GitHub and you're an owner or collaborator.

curl -X DELETE "https://bower.herokuapp.com/packages/PACKAGE?access_token=TOKEN"
  • Where PACKAGE is the package name you want to delete and TOKEN is GitHub's Personal Access Token that you can fetch from here: https://github.com/settings/applications
  • A default GitHub Personal Access Token will work -- no permissions necessary
  • You need to be an owner or collaborator of the repo and URL needs to be OK.
  • You'll likely want to bower cache clean after your change.
  • Please remember it is generally considered bad behavior to remove versions of a library that others are depending on. Think twice :)

If the above doesn't work for you, we can handle your case manually (and please post below). And again, soon we'll be addressing the remaining issues so this is much easier for everyone. :) Cheers.

Could you check if it exists/unregister gsap-js ?

Request to change package URL (or unregister): sass-hidpi

URL should be: git://github.com/kaelig/hidpi.git (instead of git://github.com:kaelig/hidpi.git)

'collection' The repo should be git://github.com/AlexGalays/collection-js.git

Once this is done, please unregister 'collection-js'

Many thanks

@satazor It'd be great if you could take care of the endpoints of the following bower packages:

angular-translate, neoskop-angular-wiring-diagram-finder

It's currently registered to point at a fork, the original owner of the repo would like to register it properly.

Will someone be attending to this ticket soon? Bower is effectively useless to the community if registrations are incorrect because developers cannot rely on bower to automate installs and updates correctly.

i8ramin commented May 20, 2013

Was Lungo removed or renamed? I can no longer installed it. I get the follow errors:

bower cloning git://github.com/TapQuo/package-lungo.git
bower caching git://github.com/TapQuo/package-lungo.git
bower error status code of git: 128

There were errors, here's a summary of them:
- lungo status code of git: 128
fatal: remote error:
  Repository not found.

- lungo status code of git: 128
fatal: remote error:
  Repository not found.

It seems related to the Capitalization of "TapQuo". When I try to manually clone git://github.com/TapQuo/package-lungo.git, it fails. However, if I am able to clone git://github.com/tapquo/package-lungo.git

(FYI @soyjavi)

👍 [danheberden] 2013-05-21 fixed the git url


Sorry for the delays - see comments inline in your particular request. packagename means it was removed. Thanks for your contributions to the bower ecosystem!

i8ramin commented May 21, 2013

Thanks Dan! I created the following packages when the lungo ones were broken. Feel free to remove them.


No rush on these. Mucho gracias


@i8ramin, removed :)

daffl commented May 21, 2013

@danheberden Thanks for changing the canjs reference but it does need to be git@github.com:bitovi/canjs.com.git not the original repository.

We'd like to keep the build file distributables in a separate repository (pretty much like in the illustrious https://github.com/components).


Thanks for the clarification @daffl - removed can (which was that git endpoint) and updated canjs to git://github.com/bitovi/canjs.com.git

@danheberden Re: Team-Sass/jacket Yep, sindresorhus has just told me that's discouraged because although you can download it, it doesn't work with http://sindresorhus.com/bower-components.

Please unregister Team-Sass/jacket and I'll re-register with the correct protocol.

bcherny commented Dec 25, 2014

It is insane to me that this issue has been open for >2 years, and there is still no unregister feature. Unregistering a package has first class API support in:

Why, specifically, is difficult to implement an unpublish feature for bower? @zenware what larger effort does the feature depend on?

CURLing is a workaround, but does not work in many cases (eg. if repo ownership changed).

@desandro it's awesome that you're taking up requests like this, but this process seems a bit out of place, considering that everyone in this thread writes software for a living...

Edit: Found the open feature PR here: #1201

kenips commented Dec 26, 2014

Could you please remove: react-android-timepicker from bower?

I renamed my github package from: react-android-timepicker to react-clock-timepicker

Both entries now exist in bower. I tried the unpublishing curl for the "android" variant, but I'm getting a "github error". This is possibly due to renaming the repo.

Bower package naming. #12


@satazor I'm working on getting this done and I would like to discuss the requirements. I think calling

curl -X DELETE "https://bower.herokuapp.com/packages/PACKAGE?access_token=TOKEN"

from the client works. If that was all of it it would have been done already. So, what are the requirements for the command?

Any other aspect I haven't covered?


FYI, if you get a 500 "GitHub.com error" back, then try setting the token to have the public repo permission.

Hopefully solved now as far as also supporting the older version not covered before. So looking forward to next manual registration maintenance round :)

  • for webodf_build, There's no conflict here. Both webodf.js and webodf_build can co-exist.

Given that webodf_build package is outdated/unmaintained I would have proposed to clean things up, as it does not add anything to what the maintained version offers, and people might only get frustrated to learn there is another version with bugs fixed and new stuff added. But your call.

I'm not sure how they appeared on Bower, as I've never used Bower before. Could you please unregister those? I'll re-register it in a little bit once I'm ready.

jrcamp commented Jan 16, 2015

I'm getting "GitHub.com error" when trying to unregister as well.

Can knockout-jqueryui be transferred to @gvas? Thanks!

csshugs commented Jan 16, 2015

Could you please unregister these packages:

  • genesis-helper
  • henryCSS


  • @lqez re-registered summernote to git://github.com/summernote/summernote.git
  • @felixexter re-registered tmpl.js to github.com/felixexter/tmpl.js.git
  • @StephanBijzitter re-registered famous-material to git://github.com/Skelware/Famous-Material.git
  • @mholt unregisterd papaparse, papaparse.js, and papa-parse . These packages had 1000's of hits, so they're fairly popular. We'd appreciate if you could re-register at least one
  • @jrcamp re-registered knockout-jqueryui to git://github.com/gvas/knockout-jqueryui.git
  • @csshugs unregistered genesis-helper and henryCSS

No need to say thank you. Thank you for using Bower.

mholt commented Jan 16, 2015

Thanks @desandro - I didn't know that. I re-registered Papa Parse under the name papaparse. But I found one more stray entry that should be removed; I'm not sure who put it there, and the repo doesn't exist anymore:

  • papa.parse (git://github.com/mholt/jquery.parse.git)

^- probably a good idea to create a system to automatically delete packages that haven't been valid for 30 days? 1 cron job a day on a server and 30 continuous fails = bye bye


I just need to transfer my package


can someone please change my 2 bower projects, i ended up putting ui-bootstrap instead of bootstrap-ui

They are




Can you let me know when this is done and i will update it on github. Thanks


Please unregister:

  • angular-timeline git://github.com/destegabry/angular-timeline.git

Owner does not support bower and issue has been open for > 12 months (see destegabry/angular-timeline#2) without response.

leoz commented Jan 20, 2015


Could you please un-register the following packages?

  • nglivejournal
  • xmlrpc

The git repos were moved to the new location.
I will register them again once they are removed.



Hi, i need to erase the lokijs-datagrid package.


tivie commented Jan 21, 2015

Can you re-register showdown package?
new url: https://github.com/showdownjs/showdown
new owner: showdownjs

The old url is outdated and corresponds to the repo before changing to a organization repository.

@Gillardo Both bootstrap-ui-datetime-picker and bootstrap-ui-treeview are open to be registered. There is no need to unregister ui-bootstrap-datetime-picker or ui-bootstrap-treeview

Ppjet6 commented Jan 29, 2015

I'm sorry I failed during the registration. Please move flex-min to flex-grid (https://github.com/Ppjet6/flex-grid)

gontard commented Jan 29, 2015

Please, move scribe-global from https://github.com/guardian/scribe.git to https://github.com/intactile/scribe-global.git


I would wager that a good 50% of these requests are due to folks typing their repo address by hand based on the instructions in bower's docs, where the example uses git:// protocol. I bet if you update that to use https, people will start copy/pasting their repo url from the address bar (you could even suggest as much in the docs), and you'll have a lot less requests here.

I'll also add that, since the curl command seems to not work under any circumstance, maybe remove that from the bower docs as well, and just direct users here?

That's all from the peanut gallery. Please change the repo for pretty-embed:

current: git://github.com/erquhart/bower-pretty-embed
new: https://github.com/mike-zarandona/PrettyEmbed.js

  • @desicochrane re-registered picky-sass to git://github.com/pickygoat/picky-sass.git ➡️
  • @PLEEROCK re-registered angular-tags-input to git://github.com/PLEEROCK/angular-tags-input.git ➡️

  • @erquhart re-registered pretty-embed to git://github.com/mike-zarandona/PrettyEmbed.js.git ➡️

@Ppjet6 You do not need to unregister a package to register it with a different name. flex-grid is already registered, but you are free to register your package with a different name.


@desandro thank you. Please check out my updated comment.

Ppjet6 commented Jan 31, 2015

@desandro, thank you for the information. Could you remove flex-min still, this one was a mistake.


Please move "file-input". I'm the owner of the parent repo. This user forked and registered the package just moments after I unregistered it during an attempt to relocate the repo to another organization.

The original location was git@github.com:garstasio/file-input.git.
I just moved the repo to git@github.com:rnicholus/file-input.git.

dvberkel commented Feb 4, 2015

I tried to do this with curl but it did not recognize me as the owner of the repository.

I would like to register a new owner and url for "cois-sprite-importer". Currently it is https://github.com/dvberkel/sprite-importer.git but ownership it transferred to https://github.com/Chair-of-Indefinite-Studies/sprite-importer.git


Please update adapter.js from git@github.com:GoogleChrome/webrtc.git to git@github.com:webrtc/adapter.git
The delete method fails probably because we moved and split the repository between the organization.

rwjblue commented Feb 10, 2015

Please change ember-qunit to point to git://github.com/rwjblue/ember-qunit-builds.

Back story:

  • It was originally located at git://github.com/rpflorence/ember-qunit
  • Ownership was transferred to @rwjblue and the main project lives at git://github.com/rwjblue/ember-qunit.git
  • Builds have been removed from that repo, and moved to the rwjblue/ember-qunit-builds repo which is where we need ember-qunit to point...
  • @Ppjet6 unregistered flex-min
  • @rnicholus re-registered file-input to git://github.com/rnicholus/file-input.git ➡️
  • @dvberkel re-registered cois-sprite-importer to git://github.com/Chair-of-Indefinite-Studies/sprite-importer.git ➡️
  • @andresusanopinto re-registered adapter.js to git://github.com/webrtc/samples.git ➡️
  • @c808xx both angular-route-ext and angular-route-ext-test are not registered
  • @rwjblue re-registered ember-qunit to git://github.com/rwjblue/ember-qunit-builds.git ➡️

Thanks much Mr. @desandro!

Hello - I need to get a bower package unregistered from my name / github account, as the repository was moved.

The original repository was derickbailey/backbone.syphon - the package was backbone.syphon

if you could get that package unregistered so that the new team maintaining it can register the new version, that would be awesome.

Since the original repo doesn't exists anymore and my one is already well known on npm people asked for adding bower support. I just did so and added bower support and released a new version.

As a follow up for comment #120 (comment) -- the package is currently registered as crypto-js-evanvosberg. The original crypto-js package cannot be downloaded anymore due to 404 (repo has been deleted).
