Recommended Development setup

We recommend the following tools for your dev setup:

Additionally, when you open the project in VS Code, you'll be prompted to install recommended extensions.


Navigate to the folder of the project you plan to work on (example /apps/pwabuilder), and follow the README for how to get started.

Running npm install in the project folder will automatically install and build all dependencies.

About this monorepo

This monorepo does not use a root package.json like other monorepos you might be used to. Instead, projects live in their separate folders and are mostly independent of each other.

However, when there are dependencies between projects, our tooling should automatically handle linking and dependency building when you run npm install in the project root.

For example /apps/pwabuilder has a dependency on library/site-analytics. This dependency is defined in the pwabuilder package.json like so:

  "dependencies": {
    "@pwabuilder/site-analytics": "file:../../libraries/site-analytics",

Running npm install in the pwabuilder folder will also run npm install and npm run build for the site-analytics project. In most cases, and unless working on a dependency, a developer will not have to worry about how these projects are linked.

For automatic linking of projects to work, ensure each project has a preinstall script like so:

  // package.json
  "scripts": {
    "preinstall": "node ../../scripts/setupDeps.js",
