Now clone pwa-studio repository

git clone https://github.com/magento-research/pwa-studio.git

You have to clone this repository in magento root directory ex: /var/www/html/magento

You will see the pwa-studio directory in /var/www/html/magento. Enter into this directoy:

cd pwa-studio/

Specify the Magento backend server in .env file. you can see the .env.dist file in /var/www/html/magento/pwa-studio/packages/venia-concept/ direcoty. If you are not able see, enable show hidden files. Now create .env file from this env.dist

cp packages/venia-concept/.env.dist packages/venia-concept/.env

Open this .env file and find MAGENTO_BACKEND_URL. Here configure your local Magento 2 instance, my case it is:


Find the deployVeniaSampleData.sh file in /var/www/html/mage0/pwa-studio/packages/venia-concept/ directory. and copy this file in your Magento root directory. Now it must look like /var/www/html/magento/deployVeniaSampleData.sh Now run:

bash deployVeniaSampleData.sh

After successful installation run:

bin/magento setup:upgrade
bin/magento indexer:reindex
bin/magento cache:flush

I hope this will help


Nothing will hapen to your existing magento as PWA only needs API's from your Magento store.

Follow all steps mentioned here: https://magento-research.github.io/pwa-studio/venia-pwa-concept/setup/

only provide backend URL as your magento link and all data's will be fetched from this link.

  • It will change existing frontend theme. I don't want change
