I spent the last few days working to get a fully functional bower behind the firewall (including my own bower web app, and a way to store my own git repositories in a "bower install foo" friendly way)

I wrote a fairly long post about it- hope it helps someone else who might need this in the future

Hi Toran,

Seems that your link is broken. Could fix it, please? I'm really interested in the topic :)

Thank you!

I just migrated to jekyll and broke the permalink initially -but after a little config magic I think the orginal url now works

(note- the one paul mentioned w/ .html on the end is no longer valid)

It seems Jekyll decided to change to UTC by default when the timezone is not set ... so my post went back a day for some odd reason.

The (non html extension) version now works again using 08/04 as the date

Sorry for the confusion everyone

For an easier private package management you could use private-bower

It's extremely easy to set up, and you'll just need a node installed, no db etc.
plus it supports fallback to the public registry if the package is not found in the private one, more over if your developer machines don't have access to public git repos, private-bower will clone the repositories for you on your public server and serve bower clients with private git repositories :)
Have fun

Do you have a way of restricting access to a defined list of public GitHub repos in this situation?

Yes

Just introduces package whitelisting and blacklisting capability in https://github.com/Hacklone/private-bower
