Installation guide

The following installation guides will guide you step-by-step to create a new EverShop project and get it started.


Please check this document for the system requirement list.

Using create-evershop-app command

npx create-evershop-app my-app

The create-evershop-app command will create a new folder named my-app and install all of the dependencies for you.

Install manually

Step 1: Install The @evershop/evershop Npm Package

@evershop/evershop is the core of the EverShop platform. It contains all of the core modules like catalog, checkout, order.

Install the @evershop/evershop Npm package
npm init;
npm install @evershop/evershop;

Step 2: Install the core Npm scripts

Open the package.json file and add the following scripts:

Add the core npm scripts
"scripts": {
"setup": "evershop install",
"build": "evershop build",
"start": "evershop start"

Step 3: Run the installation script

Before running this script, make sure that you have an empty database ready for EverShop.


Please check this document for the system requirement list.

This installation script will do the following tasks:

  • Create a default configuration file.
  • Create a database schema.
  • Create your administrator user.
Installation script
npm run setup

During the installation process, you will be asked for some information like database connection, your shop information…

Step 4: Folder permision

EverShop needs to write some files to the disk. So you need to make sure that the following folders have the write permission:

  • public/
  • .evershop
  • .log
  • media

Step 5: Run the build command to build the site

Build the site
npm run build

Step 6: Run the start command to start your store in production mode

Start the site
npm run start

Your site will start at http://localhost:3000.

Admin panel can be accessed at http://localhost:3000/admin.

Update EverShop

To update EverShop, you can run the following command:

Update EverShop
npm install @evershop/evershop@latest

EverShop will take care of the database migration for you.


Updating EverShop requires running the build command again.

"build": "evershop build",
"start": "evershop start",

"baseUrl": ".",
"paths": {
"@components/*": [
"./themes/<Your Theme Folder>/components/*",

Add the debugging scripts
"scripts": {
"start:debug": "evershop start --debug",
