This will guide you through the setup, asking whether you want a monorepo or a standalone app and whether you want to start with a blank or a preconfigured setup.
Once you've created your workspace, you can
- run single tasks with
npx nx <target> <project>
- run multiple tasks with
npx nx run-many -t <target1> <target2>
npx nx run-many -t build twice to see how Nx's powerful caching speeds up your build.

Installing Nx Into an Existing Repository
If you want to add Nx to an existing repository run:
npx nx@latest init
Installing Nx Globally
You can install Nx globally. Depending on your package manager, use one of the following commands:
npm install --global nx@latest
The advantage of a global installation is that you don't have to prefix your commands with npx, yarn or pnpm. The global Nx installation hands off the process execution to the local Nx installation in your repository, which eliminates any issues with outdated globally installed packages.
