Composing Generators

Generators are useful individually, but reusing and composing generators allows you to build whole workflows out of simpler building blocks.

Using Nx Devkit Generators

Nx Devkit generators can be imported and invoked like any javascript function. They often return a Promise, so they can be used with the await keyword to mimic synchronous code. Because this is standard javascript, control flow logic can be adjusted with if blocks and for loops as usual.

4  await libraryGenerator(
5    tree, // virtual file system tree
6    { name: } // options for the generator
