Bower & Django

from here: https://github.com/divio/django-cms/issues/3725

STATICFILES_DIRS = (
    os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'static'),
    ('bower_components', os.path.join(PROJECT_ROOT, 'bower_components')),
)
Then in all templates, includes externally manages files with something such as

<script src="{% static 'bower_components/jquery/dist/jquery.min.js' %}"></script>
