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:
  • 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.

There is a $250 open bounty on this issue. Add to the bounty at Bountysource.

Trying to register 'gsap-js' gives:

bower error Duplicate package

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

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://
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)

:+1: [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!

Each of the following packages have invalid repository URLs. It appears to be a mix up between SSH notation and URI scheme.

  • angular-paginator (git://
  • angularjs-scope.safeapply (git://
  • autocompletejs (git://
  • backbone.generic (git://
  • bugsnag (git://
  • cardify (git://
  • checkjs (git://
  • commonsense-api (git://
  • famelo-navigation (git://
  • fragment (git://

  • ng-infinite-scroll (git://
  • rdio (git://
  • scientist.js (git://
  • udeitor (git://
  • ui-calendar (git://
  • testingStash (git://

These have non-public domains.

  • BullhornLess (git://sourcecontrol/GitRepo/BullhornLess)
  • bower-test (git://localhost:8082/git/wav.webclient.component/bower-test)
  • jquerymenu (git:// (also invalid like above)
  • packageName (git://your/git/url.git) (a tutorial package?)

All packages are Git protocol endpoints (git://) except for this single case below, which is SSH. I don't know if this is discouraged or not, but I'm bringing it up just in case.

a fine Tuesday to all you good looking folks!!

the above requests have all been sorted!

a few additional notes:

@sntx i fixed the URL you requested.

@michsch I feel pretty weird about a CSS Multicol library taking the "yaml" namespace. can it not be "yaml-css" instead? (I made your repo url change regardless.

@mondalaci Something's busted with this FileSaver package. I'm gonna need some help on it.

@badunk same with js-fixtures. :/

@ankitpatial I also fixed your mis-fixed URL. ;)

Michael Schulze

@paulirish I agree, but it's not my repo and i don't know who registered it. Just wrote the project owner (@djesse) and i think he'll answer that question soon. Thanks for changing the URL. ;-)

Hey, everyone! The following packages have been unregistered / updated.











I didn't remove this one; instead I changed it to angular-d3-directives. If you do wish for it to be removed or updated again, let me know.













@tschaub and @mmerchel, I passed your requests onto @satazor to be sure they are handled correctly.

If anything was skipped or messed up, let me know!


Thank you very much Stephen!
Have a nice day :)

@tschaub done!

Sorry for the trouble, totally screwed up the naming format.

André Cruz

@dlackty we can't do that, only git:// endpoints are allowed. Bower should be downloading the tar archive from https.// and even if it fallbacks to git:// we now print a useful message for users behind proxies. What version of bower are you using?

Richard Lee

@satazor Sorry for the typo that I didn't double check when pasting it. You're right and it should be git:// endpoint. I just updated the comment above and it should be git://

fyi The reason why I would like to change it is because the official backbone repo on GitHub was migrated from documentcloud to jashkenas. All requests to documentcloud/backkbone on GitHub now get redirected to jashkenas/backbone.

Hey there! I'm from the Ember.js release team! Please remove ember-data.

We'd eventually like to republish what we publish as ember-data-shim as ember-data. I think removing it temporarily would be best, and myself and @rwjblue can get it wrapped up as part of our release process.

Also if you need a vouch for removing just let me know and I'll have someone from core team do so. But @rwjblue and I are mentioned on the blog post here( for the release team.

bower file #40

Andreas Guth

Now there is a "strophe" and "strophejs". Please point BOTH to

(Yes, there should only be one of the two, but if we delete one, someone is going to register the other one again with some other endpoint anyway, so we might as well keep both and point them to the correct location...)

Stephen Sawchuk

@jlukic - Bower lets any git endpoint be registered. For that user, they probably had a reason to fork semantic, and make it public for others to use. It wouldn't be right of me to suddenly remove it. If I'm off here, and am misunderstanding the severity or consequences of that user having a fork registered with Bower, please let me know and I will try to do the right thing!

@svnlto - Sorry for the super long delay. Done.

@calebboyd - fromjs is registered to: - how are you connected to this repository?

@coolaj86 - removed quizomatic-real, and updated quizomatic to point to its old endpoint.

@timrchavez - that url is already registered to Backbone.Modal.

@logoscreative - looks like that's true. However, it would take a request from the owner of the repository to change it. Consumers already have this, albeit, incorrect name saved to their bower.json files. Changing it suddenly would break all of those codebases.

@atesgoral - in either case, see the above statement.

@wilsonpage - fast-dom already has that as its endpoint. Would you like fast-dom removed, and fastdom to take its endpoint?

@israelshirk - changed to the URL you sent. Something is better than nothing, I suppose!

@roberdimarco - done. firebase-bower removed.

@milesj - renamed to toolkit.

@Gordin - each entry in the database must have a unique endpoint.

@addyosmani - no doubt. Hopefully I can whip something up this week. Help welcome :)

@timmywil - I apologize if I am completely missing something obvious here, but I am unsure how to proceed. You are asking that the package registered as jquery should be moved from git:// to git://, and I see that you have begun publishing builds with the tagged releases (which is awesome), but I only see 2.1.0 published this way.

If I change as you requested any user pinned to a lesser version will be left with a completely broken application. To be completely selfish for a second, just suppose that I have an Ember app that requires jQuery 2.0.3 (since the latest stable version of Ember (1.3.1) does not support jQuery 2.1) and the registry is updated, the next time I update my app I will not have a built version of jQuery.

Robert Jackson

@fronteed - jquery-icheck points to git:// (the same repo as iCheck). If I delete it a significant number of users will have errors when they attempt to update, those users will then likely open issues here or your repo. I personally do not see the harm in leaving this alone. Other maintainers please feel free to disagree with me.

Rob Muhlestein

This thread is one of the major reasons people should not be using bower. Use NPM instead.

ooxi commented March 12, 2014

@robmuh I certainly agree especially since npm contains the build artifacts which means you are quite save from random git repositories disappearing in the future.

Nevertheless most frontend dependencies use bower, not npm :(

Rob Muhlestein

The more people keep using this broken 'package manager' the worse it will get. It isn't just the removal process, it's the whole idea behind it. Frontend dependencies should never have been build with these dependencies in the first place. Just say no to the bloat, trouble, and issue spam from this system not even having an unregister function. Use NPM. Make the web a better place.

Kate Hudson

Browsers do not have file systems -- loading files over http is costly and slow. For that reason dependency resolution is an important part of a front end package manager, something that npm is obviously not designed for.

Nestor Toro natorojr referenced this issue in highslide-software/ March 12, 2014

Create bower.json #2244

Rob Muhlestein

Exactly my point. You should be isolating and including only those pieces necessary and never loading dependencies over http at all. Unless you have a focused caching strategy you should no longer have more than 2-3 script and css loads. But people still load up their headers with links to dozens of css styles and scripts. Bower just promotes more of this foolishness. People who like Bower also still like and use things like Wordpress, PHP, and jQuery. There's just no arguing with most of them.

ooxi commented March 13, 2014

I do not agree with that. Most people using bower do not directly include the components but use them as source for their build process. Instead of manually keeping copies of external libraries they let bower do the bookkeeping.


I'm not sure if I can claim this: today I tried to bower register yamm3 git://
