5th Vue Storefront Hackaton

February 1st is coming, are you sure you’re ready? No? Here’s some information that might help you.

Up and running

The Vue Storefront setup is incredibly simple. The fastest way to get the project done locally is the user-friendly installation described in the official documentation. Make sure you have node updated to 8 or higher on your machine. During the installation wizard you will be asked to use as the backend. Answer yes if you intend to work only on the storefront. In just a few minutes you will have your own version of vue storefront running on http://localhost:3000

If you also want to install Vue Storefront API, you need to use Docker which will automatically start not only vue-storefront-api but also the instances of ElasticSearch and Kibana. The procedure is described here in the official documentation. Vue Storefront Api provides a command to directly import sample data, this will save you the time to install magento and index products in ElasticSearch.

That’s all :)
