Updated: Sep 8


Have you already used Nx? If yes, please share your thoughts in the comments.

If not - we are here to shed more light on the topic.


Nx is a library of very useful tools for monorepos creation, it offers lots of powerful integrations and a rapidly growing community. It allows storing several logically-related projects in one repository, for example, a web client, a mobile client, and a backend. Such a tool obviously improves collaboration inside a tech team and eases code reuse.
Perfectly fits for all the Javascript stacks - React, Angular, Node and many more (no matter, back- or front-end technology).

Nx provides top-notch support for monorepositories: this smart system is constantly investigating your workspace, it re-builds and re-tests only just what is essential to be further processed. No computation is processed twice!

Cutting edge Cloud support is surely to be provided, allowing you link-sharing, detailed build logs observation and offering you so much free space for project improvement.


Briefly, with Nx you get:

  • Smart rebuilds

  • Project graph

  • Distributed task performance

  • Computation caching

  • Simple code sharing

  • Advanced ownership management options.

It goes with an interactive dependency diagram to ensure a deeper understanding of your workspace:


Due to the platform openness and simplicity, plenty of Nx plugins can be used to significantly raise your productivity. How? Use high-quality VS Code plugin, interactive visualizations, smoothly integrate it with your GitHub and CI, create your own most convenient Nx Devkit.


Good news: Nx can help to save up to 50% of CI time.


That is why Nx is preferred by both tech & business people, startups and established businesses.


Try it to transform your development process, today!
