Hello, I am new here and new to saleor. Could anyone please explain to me how to use the PWA storefront instead of the initial one? I have setup the environment and I can run the old storefront but not the new one. I have read the documentation but I didn't clearly understand what I need to do, any further clarifications would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

@dimitrisppt Its still in beta, so its not recommended to use it in production. However, you can simply run it with npm i && npm start. You have to make sure an instance of Saleor is running and that the env var BACKEND_URL is set to the Saleor url (e.g. localhost:8000).

@elarb thanks for your answer! Do we know around when would be okay to use it in production?

No idea, but you can track development here: https://github.com/mirumee/saleor-storefront/issues
@maarcingebala Is there any documentation/scripts available that could help me with deploying (e.g. to do, ovh, aws, gc) without spending too much time figuring stuff out?
Deploying to Heroku shouldn't be an issue, but it's far from the optimal option imo
