The One Repo To Rule Them All - Unleashing The Power Of Nx

By Liza Morrison


BeJS conf 2023

Nx monorepo tool is more than just a tool for managing codebases. It's a powerful platform that offers advanced features designed to optimize your development process. In this talk, we'll explore some of these advanced features, including Generators, Executors, and Migrations, and show you how they can help you take your projects to the next level. First, we'll dive into Nx's selective task running system. With Nx, you can only run what has changed, saving you time and speeding up your development process. Nx analyzes your project graph and diff it against a baseline to determine which projects have changed and which tasks need to be re-run. Next, we'll explore Nx's smart caching system. Nx never rebuilds the same code twice. It can detect whether a computation has already run and restore the files and terminal output from its cache. This feature saves you time and improves your development efficiency. We'll also show you how Nx's distributed task execution system can achieve maximum parallelization and CPU efficiency for your CI runs. With automated, dynamic distribution of tasks across multiple machines, Nx can take full advantage of your available resources and get faster feedback on your code changes. Finally, we'll discuss some advanced topics, including Generators, Executors, and Migrations. Generators allow you to generate code in a structured way, Executors enable you to define how to run tasks and actions, and Migrations allow you to evolve your codebase over time. We'll demonstrate how these features can help you further optimize your development process and take your projects to the next level. If you're looking to explore the full potential of Nx monorepo tool, join us for this talk. We'll show you how to harness its advanced features and unlock the true power of your development process.
