PolymerJS: Getting setup

To download Polymer, its dependencies and such, use [bower](http://bower.io/#install-bower), then, in a new directory, type in the command line bower init. (You can press enter -- except for the name -- at all the prompts if you want.)

$ bower init ? 
name: somename ? 
version: 0.0.0 
... ? 
Looks good? Yes


Next run bower install --save Polymer/polymer#^1.2.0 which will pull the latest Polymer 1.2 minor version, its dependencies, and place them all in a directory called bower_components.
 
Now let's create an index.html.
 
<html> 
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <script src="bower_components/webcomponentsjs/webcomponents-lite.min.js"></script>
    <link rel="import" href="bower_components/polymer/polymer.html">
  </head>
  <body> 
    This does nothing at the moment, except pull in webcomponents and polymer. 
  </body> 
</html>

And we are, at least, setup, if not actually using polymer as yet.
