Adding Images, Fonts, and Files

With Nx, you can import assets directly from your TypeScript/JavaScript code.

1import React from 'react'; 2import logo from './logo.png'; 3 4const Header = () => <img src={logo} alt="Logo" />; 5 6export default Header; 7

This import will be replaced by a string of the image path when the application builds. To reduce the number of network requests, if the image file size is less than 10 kB, then the image will be inlined using data URI instead of a path.

This works in CSS files as well.

1.logo { 2 background-image: url(./logo.png); 3} 4

Adding SVGs

SVG images can be imported using the method described above.

Alternatively, you can import SVG images as React components.

1import React from 'react'; 2import { ReactComponent as Logo } from './logo.svg'; 3 4const Header = () => <Logo title="Logo" />; 5 6export default Header; 7

This method of import allow you to work with the SVG the same way you would with any other React component. You can style it using CSS, styled-components, etc. The SVG component accepts a title prop, as well as any other props that the svg element accepts.

Note that if you are using Next.js, you have to opt into this behavior. To import SVGs as React components with Next.js, you need to make sure that nx.svgr value is set to true in your Next.js application's next.config.js file:

1module.exports = withNx({ 2 nx: { 3 svgr: true, 4 }, 5}); 6
