run-commands

Generates a target to run any command in the terminal

Usage

nx generate run-commands ...
nx g run-command ... # same

By default, Nx will search for run-commands in the default collection provisioned in angular.json.

You can specify the collection explicitly as follows:

nx g @nrwl/workspace:run-commands ...

Show what will be generated without writing to disk:

nx g run-commands ... --dry-run

Examples

Add the printhello target to my-feature-lib:

nx g @nrwl/workspace:run-commands printhello --project my-feature-lib --command 'echo hello'
