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 ""
  • Where PACKAGE is the package name you want to delete and TOKEN is GitHub's Personal Access Token that you can fetch from here:
  • 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.

Trying to register 'gsap-js' gives:

bower error Duplicate package


$ bower search gsap-js No results

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

[danheberden] 2013-05-21 - there are no packages named gsap, let alone no packages with gsap in their name

I seem to have made the common mistake of using the wrong repo path. Can you unregister SuperScrollorama so I can fix?

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.

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

bower cloning git://
bower caching 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://, it fails. However, if I am able to clone 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!

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.

Hello, could you please move the crypto-js package?

From: git://
To: git://

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.

@kirill-konshin kirill-konshin commented Mar 24, 2015

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).

Hey everyone. Bower 1.4.0 now includes unregister feature.

If you're still unable to unregister your component, please open an issue on bower/registry.
