Bower Installation

Chosen does not currently support command-line bower install chosen installation. This is because the repo does not contain the compiled sources, and bower does not currently support adding a post-install/build step.

However, you can specify that you'd like to use the release ZIP, which includes the compiled and minified sources.

Either install from the command line with

$ bower install

or add Chosen to your own project's `bower.json` file, like:

  "name": "my-project",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "dependencies": {
    "jquery": "1.11.0",
    "chosen": ""

See #1509, #1472, and #1333 for more info.
