Node.js dependency managers like
YARN does support the easy execution of
starter-kit-packages to bootstrap or create the boilerplate of many kinds of projects, like create-npm which bootstraps a package by running:
npm create npm github-user/my-pkg
yarn create npm github-user/my-pkg
These packages starts with create-* and the
create command forwards any
<args> to the binary, so
yarn create nx-plugin my-workspace --pluginName my-plugin
is equivalent to
yarn global add create-nx-plugin
create-nx-plugin my-workspace --pluginName my-plugin
I do usually use create-nx-workspace and recently I wanted to re-take my experiments with
Nx so I created a new workspace with
npx create-nx-workspace --preset angular and I got an outdated setup.
I was wondering if the package was not being maintained properly (which was very unlikely) but then I realized that I installed it globally many months ago for some reason, and I didn't update it since then...
Try to not install packages globally which gets easily outdated, and please never install a
starter package globally. Just run the latest version with
npm create or
yarn create or
We have to get used to run the local dependencies via
npm run command or
yarn command instead having global dependencies that can give us headaches after some time.
