How to add Magepack Bundling in Adobe Commerce Cloud?

In the world of Ecommerce, website optimization, page load speed, and performance are the most important causes of concern. In Magento, We have Advanced Javascript Bundling to the rescue.

Advanced Javascript Bundling enhances page load speed and performance by minimizing the number of server requests and the bundle size required to load each page in the front end.

Here, We will discuss the Magepack, an Open Source Advanced Javascript Bundling Tool to improve the performance and page load speed.


To install Magepack (, We need

  • Node.js
  • Magepack Magento Module

In the Adobe Commerce Cloud Instance, We need to follow the below steps to install Magepack.

Steps to Install Magepack in Adobe Commerce Cloud

STEP 1:  Add the “magepack bundle” command and its dependencies to the build phase of the “” file as provided below,

   # We run build hooks before your application has been packaged.
  build: |
   set -e
   composer install
   curl -o- | bash
   export NVM_DIR="$HOME/.nvm"
   [ -s "$NVM_DIR/"  ] && \. "$NVM_DIR/"
   nvm install --lts=erbium
   npm install -g magepack
   php ./vendor/bin/ece-tools run scenario/build/generate.xml
   magepack bundle
   php ./vendor/bin/ece-tools run scenario/build/transfer.xml

STEP 2: To run the magepack bundle command on the build phase, we should run the static content deployment before it. 

Magento has a Deploy Strategy “Setting the SCD on build”. 

To do the same, add the following code in .magento.env.yaml file

# To generate SCD on build
	SKIP_SCD: false
	SCD_STRATEGY: "compact"

STEP 3:  Create a system-specific configuration file (config.php). 

a) To generate the file,  Use the SSH command below.

ssh <SSH-URL> "<Command>"

For example, To run the dump in the integration branch

ssh <project-id-integration> "php vendor/bin/ece-tools config:dump"

b) Transfer the config.php file to the local system using the rsync command below.

rsync <SSH-URL>:app/etc/config.php ./app/etc/config.php

STEP 4: Run the magepack generate command from local env. This will generate a magepack.config.js  file in the local env.

magepack generate --cms-url="https://my-store-url/" 

There are 3 required options you need to pass:

–cms-url – URL to one of the CMS pages of your store (e.g. homepage).

–category-url – URL to one of the category pages.

–product-url – URL to one of the product pages.

STEP 5: Commit the below four files on git and deploy it to the cloud server,
