Nx Plugin for React

The Nx Plugin for React contains generators for managing React applications and libraries within an Nx workspace. It provides:

  • Integration with libraries such as Jest, Cypress, and Storybook.
  • Scaffolding for state management with Redux Toolkit libraries.
  • Scaffolding for creating buildable libraries that can be published to npm.
  • Utilities for automatic workspace refactoring.

Adding the React plugin

Adding the React plugin to a workspace can be done with the following:

1#yarn
2yarn add -D @nrwl/react
1#npm
2npm install -D @nrwl/react

Note: You can create a new workspace that has React set up by doing npx create-nx-workspace@latest --preset=react

The file structure for a React application looks like:

│   ├── myapp/

Executors / Builders

React applications are built using the executors from the @nrwl/web plugin.

  • build - Builds a web components application
  • dev-server - Builds and serves a web application
  • package - Bundles artifacts for a buildable library that can be distributed as an NPM package.
