best way to integrate Bootstrap


Somewhere I read it’s better to integrate Bootstrap with Rails via Bower rather than as gem.

What do you think?

I’ve honestly not tried it with Bower but have been successful with both a gem and also dropping in the assets manually.

It seems, if you use via bower more chances you’ll have the latest version of Bootstrap…

I think honestly it’s 6, 1/2 dozen of another, unless you’re worried about ‘the new shiny’ releases. If you are getting bootstrap from a CDN you’ll be sure to have the newest upgrades. If you install it through a gem you’d have to update your gemfile everytime you want to upgrade, but I don’t follow bootstrap enough to know when significant changes take place.
