This article describes how to deploy Intershop Progressive Web Application (PWA) for a demo server in development mode.

1.1 References

1.2 Deployment Steps

The development mode uses simple browser-side rendering. More details about this option, see Intershop Progressive Web App - Deployment Scenarios.

  1. Check the system requirements for the PWA - see Overview - Intershop Progressive Web App System Requirements.
  2. Download the corresponding PWA version from https://github.com/intershop/intershop-pwa/releases.

    Example
    wget https://github.com/intershop/intershop-pwa/archive/0.20.0.zip
  3. Unzip the file.

    Example
    unzip 0.20.0.zip 

    PWA <0.22.0: The directory name must not contain any dots.

  4. Change to the PWA directory.

    Example
    cd intershop-pwa
  5. Install the PWA.

    npm install
  6. Start the PWA.

    ng serve --host <host_ip> --port <port> 

    In the default configuration, the PWA runs with test data. If the PWA is to be connected to an ICM 7.10 system, the configuration file src/environments/environment.ts must be adapted. The property mockServerAPI must be set to false and icmBaseURL must be set to the correct ICM 7.10 URL.

    If icmBaseURL uses HTTPS,  the parameter --ssl must be added to the ng serve command.

    src/environments/environment.ts
    export const environment: Environment = {
      ...ENVIRONMENT_DEFAULTS,
      mockServerAPI: true,
    
      /* INTERSHOP COMMERCE MANAGEMENT REST API CONFIGURATION */
      icmBaseURL: 'http://localhost:4200',
    };
  7. To access the PWA, open a web browser at the specified URL.

    Example
    ...
    ** Angular Live Development Server is listening on 10.0.56.157:4200, open your browser on http://10.0.56.157:4200/ **
    : Compiled successfully.
