CRA - to - Nx
This package will turn your React app into an Nx workspace. To use this package, your React app must have been generated and kept the structure of Create-React-App, with files generated either in js/jsx or ts/tsx.
This tool follows the steps described in this migration guide, with some enhancements.
It will, essentially, generate a new Nx workspace, and then place your existing CRA React app in the
apps directory of the Nx workspace, while configuring the Nx workspace as needed.
As this package will change your folder structure and edit some of your files, you must commit any local changes you have, to start with clean history. In any case, to protect you, the package will exit if there are local uncommited changes.
How to use
Go to your CRA React app directory and run the following command:
Then just sit back and wait. After a while you will be able to take advantage of the full magic of Nx.
Ok, it's done, what do I do now?
Run, build, lint, test
You can try the following commands:
nx serve your-app-name nx build your-app-name nx lint your-app-name nx test your-app-name
Take a look at this guide
Or just try generating a library:
nx generate lib ui-button
Courses, guides, docs
Or just use the VS Code Nx Extension, Nx Console to do all these using a UI.
So, now I just have my React app in a monorepo?
No. You have your React app in an Nx workspace. So you also have the full power of Nx tools. You can watch this 10-minute quick overview if you want to know more.
