When you have a fresh installation of Magento 2 there is no app/code folder. You have to create it if you need to add a new local module.

  • I downloaded from website.If i dont see all code, how can i create some module? i now downloaded fromgithub code. put to war/www and then run localhost(magento/esetup but di not work but now in root i did composer insstall. i hope it works. becase normaly it asks for a lt of things here devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/install-gde/prereq/…

  • Don't install from Github. It's only going to cause problems later. When they build Magento for release, they move all of their official code from app/code/Magento to vendor/magento. This is completely intentional.
