Nx is a powerful tool for creating scalable, efficient, and maintainable web applications. One of the ways to use Nx is by creating a monorepo, which is a repository that contains multiple projects. This tutorial will guide you through the steps of creating an Nx monorepo, and how to use it to develop web applications.
Step 1: Install Nx
Before we start, we need to install Nx. To do this, open a terminal and run the following command:
npm install -g nx
Step 2: Create a new Nx monorepo
To create a new Nx monorepo, run the following command in your terminal:
nx create-nx-workspace my-app
This will create a new Nx monorepo called “my-app” in your current directory. You can replace “my-app” with any name you like.
Step 3: Create a new project in the Nx monorepo
Now that we have created our Nx monorepo, we can create a new project inside it. To do this, run the following command in your terminal:
nx generate @nrwl/react:application my-app
This will generate a new project called “my-app” using the React framework. You can replace “my-app” with any name you like, and you can also use other frameworks such as Angular or Vue.
Step 4: Add dependencies to the project
Next, we need to add dependencies to our project. To do this, navigate to the project directory using the following command:
This will install the react-router-dom package, which we will use later in our project.
Step 5: Develop the project
Now that we have set up our project, we can start developing it. Open the project in your favorite code editor and start coding!
Step 6: Build the project
Once we have finished developing our project, we can build it by running the following command in our terminal:
nx build my-app
This will create a production-ready build of our project, which we can then deploy to a web server.
In this tutorial, we have learned how to create an Nx monorepo, how to create a new project inside it, and how to develop and build the project. By using Nx, we can create scalable, efficient, and maintainable web applications with ease.
