remove

Usage

nx generate remove ...

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

You can specify the collection explicitly as follows:

Show what will be generated without writing to disk:

nx g remove ... --dry-run

nx g @nrwl/workspace:remove my-feature-lib --forceRemove
