Moves an Angular application or library to another folder within the workspace and updates the project configuration.


nx generate move ...
nx g mv ... # same

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

You can specify the collection explicitly as follows:

nx g @nrwl/angular:move ...

Show what will be generated without writing to disk:

nx g move ... --dry-run
