This documentation is currently under development.
This guide is the first step in developing a FastStore website integrated with the VTEX Platform. In the following section, you will set up your VTEX environment and install all the necessary apps to start developing with FastStore.
Notice that you must complete the following steps before developing your storefront or configuring your website DNS because needed dependencies, such as VTEX Intelligent Search, will be installed and configured throughout this process.

Before you begin

Before proceeding any further, make sure you have:
  1. Access to a VTEX account.
  2. The VTEX IO CLI installed on your machine. Please refer to this guide for more information.

Step by step

You will use the FastStore plugin for the VTEX IO CLI to install, with a single command, all dependencies needed for developing a FastStore website.
  1. Log in to your VTEX account:
Remember to replace the values between curly brackets according to your scenario.

_10
vtex login {account}

  1. Install the FastStore plugin for the VTEX IO CLI:

_10
vtex plugins install faststore

  1. Set up your VTEX account for FastStore by running the following command:

_10
