What is Nx?

🔎 Powerful, Extensible Dev Tools.

Nx Helps You

Develop like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft

Nx helps scale your development from one team building one application to many teams building multiple frontend and backend applications all in the same workspace. When using Nx, developers have a holistic dev experience powered by an advanced CLI (with editor plugins), capabilities for controlled code sharing and consistent code generation.

Use Intelligent Build System with Distributed Caching

Nx is smart. It analyzes your workspace and figures out what can be affected by every code change. That's why Nx doesn't rebuild and retest everything on every commit--it only rebuilds what is necessary.

Nx also uses a distributed computation cache. If someone has already built or tested similar code, Nx will use their results to speed up the command for everyone else instead of rebuilding or retesting the code from scratch. This, in combination with Nx’s support for distributed and incremental builds, can help teams see up to 10x reduction in build and test times.

Use Modern Tools

Nx is an open platform with plugins for many modern tools and frameworks. It has support for TypeScript, React, Angular, Cypress, Jest, Prettier, Nest.js, Next.js, Storybook, Ionic among others. With Nx, you get a consistent dev experience regardless of the tools used.

Getting Started

Creating an Nx Workspace

Using

npx

npx create-nx-workspace

Using

npm init

npm init nx-workspace

Using

yarn create

yarn create nx-workspace

The

create-nx-workspace
command will ask you to select a preset, which will configure some plugins and create your applications to help you get started.
? What to create in the new workspace (Use arrow keys)
❯ empty             [an empty workspace with a layout that works best for building apps]
  oss               [an empty workspace with a layout that works best for open-source projects]
  web components    [a workspace with a single app built using web components]
  angular           [a workspace with a single Angular application]
  angular-nest      [a workspace with a full stack application (Angular + Nest)]
  react             [a workspace with a single React application]
  react-express     [a workspace with a full stack application (React + Express)]
  next.js           [a workspace with a single Next.js application]

Select the preset that works best for you. You can always add plugins later.

? Workspace name (e.g., org name)     happyorg
? What to create in the new workspace web components    [a workspace with a single app built using web components]
? Application name                    myapp
? Default stylesheet format           CSS

If it's your first Nx project, the command will recommend you to install the

nx
package globally, so you can invoke
nx
directly without going through yarn or npm.

Serving Application

  • Run
    nx serve myapp
    to serve the newly generated application!
  • Run
    nx test myapp
    to test it.
  • Run
    nx e2e myapp-e2e
    to run e2e tests for it.

Angular users can also run

ng g/serve/test/e2e
.

You are good to go!
