Initializing Shopware PWA#

Running Shopware PWA#

This guide is based on the official documentation of Shopware PWA.

(0.) Install SwagShopwarePwa Plugin

  1. Download a plugin packed in a zip file from github: master version

  2. Log in to the admin panel at https://your-awesome-shopware-project.test/admin

  3. Go to Setting > System > Plugins and click Upload plugin button.

  4. When the plugin is uploaded - just install and activate it. That’s all. Shopware 6 is shopware-pwa ready now!

Or to do it programmatically run the following commands inside your Shopware Reward Shell:

   wget -O ~/
   php bin/console plugin:zip-import ~/

  1. Initialize Reward.

    $ mkdir ~/Sites/shopware-pwa
    $ cd ~/Sites/shopware-pwa
    $ reward env-init shopware-pwa --environment-type=shopware-pwa
  2. Sign a certificate for your project

    $ reward sign-certificate shopware-pwa.test
  3. Bring up the environment

    $ reward env up
  4. Create a regular PWA Project

    $ reward shell
    $ npx @shopware-pwa/cli@canary init
  5. Configure backend in shopware-pwa.config.js

  6. Update package.json and add these to the scripts part

    "start": "yarn && yarn build --ci && node scripts/init.js --disable-host-check --public shopware-pwa.test"
    # you can use this script if you are familiar with jq
    cat package.json | jq --arg domain "$DOMAIN" -Mr '. * {scripts:{start: ("yarn && yarn build --ci && node scripts/init.js --public " + $domain + " --disable-host-check")}}' | tee package.json


    We have to add both –disable-host-check (to skip host header verification) and –public (to let webpack dev server know it is behind a proxy and it shouldn’t add custom port to it’s callback URLs).

  7. Install dependencies

    $ reward shell
    $ yarn
  8. Restart the PWA container

    $ reward env restart
  9. Optional: if you’d like to run the project in Developer/Production mode, add the following line to your .env file

    # Developer Mode (default)
    # Production Mode
    DOCKER_START_COMMAND="yarn start"
