go to /admin/commerce/config/checkout-flows and replace the default login with the login provided by this module
Optionally, the patch from this issue will allow for the username to be entered on registration.

How to include javascript on single pages in Drupal 8 in a way that is amenable to scale.


Following Steps will make working with External JavaScript libraries in Drupal 8 absolutely clear (including how to conditionally load it in specific pages):

Step 1: Place the JavaScript file in your theme or module inside a folder called js. After this step your folder structure must look like :

Step 2: If your theme already has a my-theme.libraries.yml file open it, if not create it.
