The tutorial I'm working through: http://alanstorm.com/category/magento-2 does not explain what to do with the missing app/code directory.

I got Magento by compressed archive and I understand — the vendor directory is equivalent to app/code. I don't understand what this means. Can I create the directory in my computer simply by right-clicking inside the magento folder an choosing New > Folder. I created an app/code folder directory like this:


Should I do this?




The app folder goes in the base magento directory.

  • This is Magento 2. app/code for version 2 has been removed from the base Magento directory. I have been told the vendor directory is equivalent to app/code. – Kadin Jul 18 '16 at 23:18
  • Just create the folders that don't exist. The vendor directory is used for modules / themes that are installed using composer. – Aaron Allen Jul 18 '16 at 23:21
  • customizations goes to app/code while any third party components and the Magento application itself are stored under the vendor dir. Usually if you are using git this vendor dir is typacilly added to .gitignore – sebastian schön Nov 18 '18 at 12:08

In magento2 app folder is already but need to create the (code) folder for own customization.

htdocs/magento/vendor/magento contain all base files for magento.These all are magento core modules.

  • Do I have create app/code folders? If so, where do I create the folders? – Kadin Jul 19 '16 at 1:09
  • In magento root installation . – Sourav Jul 19 '16 at 1:11
