Is there any way we can display LWC as a separated page similar to VisualForce page? I know we can create an app than aura component which holds LWC component on VFP but we don't want to use VFP at all. We can open LWC component in a tab with full width but the top header - salesforce navigation is there. I know we can overwrite css to not display salesforce top header but this I would find as a not good practice. So the question is is there any other way to display LWC as a full width and height page without VFP?

You can use a Lightning App. Like a VFP, they are addressable via a URL:


Which you write as:

<aura:application extends="force:slds">
    <c:myLwc />

You can also just add the lightning__AppPage target and and make a full page app if you prefer, though it would then have some minor padding on all sides, etc.

  • Thanks for your response, how to actually preview it somewhere or add it to app exchange to check if it works? my-domain.lightning.force.com/lightning/myAppName.app doesnt work at all

  • @panatoni You need to create the app (you can use Developer Console for this). Also, I should mention you can run a Local Lightning Server if you're using SFDX: developer.salesforce.com/docs/component-library/documentation/…

  • @panatoni If you use a Lightning App, it will be completely self-contained. imgur.com/a/0YaASbY
