component

Create a component

Usage

nx generate component ...
nx g c ... # same

By default, Nx will search for component in the default collection provisioned in angular.json.

You can specify the collection explicitly as follows:

nx g @nrwl/react:component ...

Show what will be generated without writing to disk:

nx g component ... --dry-run

nx g component my-component --project=mylib

nx g component my-component --project=mylib --classComponent
