You can clone with
HTTPS or Subversion.
It would be nice if have auto-update for Bower packages, because of NPM is just for JS.
True, and this is something we're discussing as well. Thanks for the suggestion :)
Going to re-open this for other developers to chime in.
There seems to be a problem, at least for me.
There is no "simple download", so that you don't know what file matters ... (same for npm).
I thought it could be cool to set a whitelist for files in the package.json (cdnjs) but in fact, you can't : if the useful files depend on the version ...
How to solve it, so ? Write another ... dot-json file to rule them all ? :D
