defaultCollection

In the nx.json you can set a defaultCollection property like this:

1{
2  "cli": {
3    "defaultCollection": "@nrwl/next"
4  }
5}
6

This would cause the following command

nx g library my-lib

To create a @nrwl/next:library library instead of some other generator with the name library.

This property is no longer needed because the Nx cli automatically will prompt you to choose between the available options if there is any ambiguity. The output looks like this:

> nx g lib my-lib
? Which generator would you like to use? …
@nrwl/react-native:library
@nrwl/angular:library
@nrwl/expo:library
@nrwl/nest:library
@nrwl/node:library

@nestjs/schematics:library
@schematics/angular:library
@nrwl/js:library
@nrwl/next:library
@nrwl/react:library
@nrwl/workspace:library

None of the above
