How to Venia


This is a Magento 2.3.1 PWA Storefront built with the new scaffolding mechanism available from PWA Studio v4.1.0-dev.0.

More than that, it's a collection of how-to-articles which can be followed to give you a basic understanding of how to work with PWA Studio by creating a storefront based on Magento's Venia Storefront (Concept),


As I started to explore PWA Studio I kept notes to help me understand how it worked. As a Magento front-end developer there are new skills to master 😄 I thought that these notes may be helpful to others who were in a similar position.

PWA Studio has not offered a clear way of setting up a PWA Studio app until recently.
Previously you needed to clone their monorepo which was not a straightforward process, (see v1.0.0 of this repo).

Fortunately, PWA Studio improves this process with their new scaffolding mechanism, currently this is only available with a prototype command and has little documentation.

Here I share my understanding of how it can work and be used to create your own custom PWA Studio storefront.



Notes have been kept in markdown format in the ./how-to-articles/ directory.
They cover basic React & PWA Studio concepts which I think may be useful to front-end developers with limited React & PWA experience.
