Schema for internal use only

Please do not extend this schema as it is part of Nx internal usage.


Initialize Vite in the workspace.

This is a generator will initialize Vite.js in your workspace. It will install all the necessary dependencies. You can read more about how this generator works, in the Vite package overview page.


You don't need to use this generator on its own.

This generator will be called automatically when you are either converting an existing React or Web app to use Vite, using the @nx/vite:configuration generator, or when you are creating a new React or Web app using the @nx/react:app or @nx/web:app generators, if you choose vite as the bundler.

If you need to for some reason, you can use it on its own like this:


Install all the necessary dependencies for Vite and the React plugin

1nx g @nx/vite:init --uiFramework=react 2
Nx 15 and lower use @nrwl/ instead of @nx/

Install all the necessary dependencies for Vite

1nx g @nx/vite:init --uiFramework=none 2
Nx 15 and lower use @nrwl/ instead of @nx/


1nx generate init ... 2
1nx g ng-add ... #same 2

By default, Nx will search for init in the default collection provisioned in workspace.json.

You can specify the collection explicitly as follows:

Show what will be generated without writing to disk:

1nx g init ... --dry-run 2
