Upgrading from a previous version
The method for updating to 5.0.1 from a previous version depends on how PWA Studio is incorporated into your project.
The following are common use cases we have identified and how to update the project code.
PWA Studio fork
Many PWA Studio users have forked the PWA Studio Git repository.
Even though their codebase may have diverged a great deal from the current codebase, there is still a Git relationship.
Upgrade method: Update using Git
Pull and Merge the changes from the upstream repository using Git.
Most of the conflicts will be in components that we have fully refactored.
We recommend merging the library code we changed and updating component calls with any new prop signatures introduced in this version.
Manual code copies
Some PWA Studio users have copied parts of the code into their own projects.
This is similar to the Git workflow, but without the merging tools Git provides.
Upgrade method: Manual copy updates
Updating this code involves manually copying updates for the code they use.
New code may also need to be copied over if the updated code depends on it.
This method can be a chore, and we hope that some of the features in 5.0.0 will help these users migrate to a package management approach.
Some users have imported the PWA Studio libraries using NPM.
This is the easiest way to work with the released versions of PWA Studio.
Upgrade method: Update
To upgrade to 5.0.1, update the project's
package.json file and change the dependency version for PWA Studio.
