Cannot Install Kendo UI from Bower

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI for jQuery
NodeJS 7.10.0
NPM 4.2.0
Bower Version 1.8.0

Description

I use Git Credential Manager. After it prompts for my username and password, Bower authentication fails with the Authentication failed error message, and I am not able to install Kendo UI.  

Solution

Use a bower.json file with the credentials as part of the URL. Encode both the password and the credentials.

/*
Actual Username: jdoe@missingpersons.com
Encoded Username: jdoe%40missingpersons.com 

Actual Password: $password!
Encoded Password: %24password%21
*/ 

As a result, the bower.json file reads https://[EncodedUsername]:[EncodedPassword]@bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git#~2017.1.118.

"dependencies": {
  "kendo-ui":"https://jdoe%40missingpersons.com:%24password%21@bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git#~2017.1.118"
 }
