tl;dr Use npm instead of Bower whenever you can!
With Ember 2.11 we are now using the
ember-source module and
no longer the
ember Bower package. In the upcoming Ember CLI 2.12
release, Bower will also no longer be installed by default and only install
lazily when an addon requests it. All this indicates that from now on we should
try to use npm packages instead of Bower whenever possible. This blog post
will explain how we can do that and what options are available to us.
