When migrating from one version to a new one, you should remove all the PWA assets generated previously and generate them again after upgrading @vite-pwa/assets-generator package.


If you're using some of the old PWA assets in your application, don't remove them.

Remember to check the changes before upgrading to a new version in your local environment:

  • start the current version in your local server, opening your application to check the old PWA assets
  • upgrade the package to the new version and regenerate the PWA assets
  • start the new version in your local server, refresh your application to check the new PWA assets

From v0.1.0 to v0.2.0

The api and the core has been built from scratch, the CLI has been rebuilt on top of the API.

The main changes included in version v0.2.0 are:

  • generatePWAImageAssets and generatePWAAssets functions have been removed from @vite-pwa/assets-generator package export: now the package only export types and some utilities.
  • new @vite-pwa/assets-generator/api/instructions package export: new instructions function to collect the icon assets instructions.
  • new @vite-pwa/assets-generator/api/generate-assets package export: new generateAssets function to generate icon assets from an instruction.
  • new @vite-pwa/assets-generator/api/generate-html-markup package export: new generateHtmlMarkup function to generate all html head links from an instruction.
  • new @vite-pwa/assets-generator/api/generate-manifest-icons-entry package export: new generateManifestIconsEntry function to generate the PWA web manifest icons' entry.
  • new CLI options for html head links generation: xhtml and includeId.

If you are using generatePWAImageAssets and/or generatePWAAssets functions, you need to update your code to use the new instructions and generateAssets functions.

If you're only using the CLI, you don't need to change anything.

From minimal to minimal-2023 Preset

If you are using pwa-assets-generator in your package.json scripts, update the script from:

"generate-assets": "pwa-assets-generator --preset minimal <your-logo-path>"


"generate-assets": "pwa-assets-generator --preset minimal-2023 <your-logo-path>"

If you are using a configuration file:

  • update the built-in preset name or update the import to use minimal2023Preset: check the code snippets in the built-in features section.
  • include headLinkOptions.preset = '2023' in you configuration file

The new minimal-2023 preset changes only the favicon.ico size, the apple-touch-icon and PWA manifest icons are the same, you need to update your html head favicon entries, from:

  <link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" sizes="any">
  <link rel="icon" href="/favicon.svg" type="image/svg+xml">


  <link rel="icon" href="/favicon.ico" sizes="48x48">
  <link rel="icon" href="/favicon.svg" sizes="any" type="image/svg+xml">
