I have NX workspace with some apps and the product decided to change one of the apps name,
how can I do it without manually change the app’s folders names, modules names, all the importing paths, NX settings etc’?
Same app, same location, only different name.
Since Nx 8.12 you can do it by using the
move schematic (or
mv) to ‘move’ the app to the same place but with the new wanted name.
For example, if I want to rename my ‘oldNG’ app to be called ‘newNG’, I can do that like so:
nx g @nrwl/workspace:move --project oldNG newNG
nx g mv --project oldNG newNG if I want to rename app from my default collection. (provisioned in angular.json).
If I want to move this app to different place- I just need to include the destination in the new name of the app, like so:
--project oldNG distention/newNG
