Nx Console Generate Command

The Generate action allows you to choose a generator and then opens a form listing out all the options for that generator. As you make changes to the form, the generator is executed in --dry-run mode in a terminal so you can preview the results of running the generator in real time.

From the Command Palette

You can also launch the Generate action from the Command Palette (⇧⌘P) by selecting nx: generate (ui).

You can even construct the generator options while staying entirely within the Command Palette. Use ⇧⌘P to open the Command Palette, then select nx: generate. After choosing a generator, select any of the listed options to modify the generator command. When you're satisfied with the constructed command, choose the Execute command at the top of the list.
