I'm happy to announce that DevExtreme is now available for download through

So what is bower? A package manager for the web:

Web sites are made of lots of things — frameworks, libraries, assets, utilities, and rainbows. Bower manages all these things for you.

Bower works by fetching and installing packages from all over, taking care of hunting, finding, downloading, and saving the stuff you’re looking for.

Bower is based on Node.js and, therefore, works on OSX, Linux, and Windows environments.

And Bower is now the main tool for client package management in Visual Studio 2015.


After your bower environment is set up, you can install the DevExtreme package by calling:

The "bower install devextreme" call will download and install all scripts, CSS, font icons files, type script definitions, etc to use DevExtreme.

And with Bower, updating your DevExtreme package is as easy as changing the version number in your bower manifest file.

Create highly responsive web apps for touch-enabled devices and traditional desktops.

From desktops to mobile devices, DevExtreme HTML5 Data Grid delivers the flexibility you’ll need to build apps that reach the widest audience and deliver touch-first user experiences to power your next great interactive website.

I can see that DevExtreme is indeed available on Bower, but how about the full source code? It's needed to be able to include the Angular integration with RequireJS and only use the files actually needed.

Hi Marcus,

The JavaScript modules are present only in npm package because we want this feature to be used only in modern environments (webpack, jspm).

So, to fully utilize power of modular DevExtreme you should first buy a DevExtreme licence (Mobile, Web, Complete) that contains the necessary components and then get our single npm package. Each JavaScript module contains information in the header.
