buildable is alias for old publishable you can always make an existing library buildable after the fact.
Every buildable library has a build task.
yarn create nx-workspace yeti --preset=empty -prefix=yeti # create an empty workspace
nx g @nrwl/angular:app yeti-web-app --style=scss --prefix=yeti --routing --tags="domain:yeti,type:app,platform:web" --dry-run
nx g @nrwl/nest:app yeti-api --frontendProject=yeti-web-app --tags="domain:yeti,type:api,platform:node"
# generate share angular lib module
nx g @nrwl/angular:lib ui --style=scss --tags="domain:shared,type:ui,platform:web"
nx g @nrwl/angular:lib knob --directory=components --buildable --style=scss --tags="domain:shared,type:ui,platform:web"
nx g @nrwl/nest:lib <nest-lib> [--controller] [--service] [--global] [--buildable] [--tags] # generate nestjs lib module
nx g @nrwl/workspace:lib btree --directory=utils --tags="domain:shared,type:util,platform:universal" # generate share universal lib module

Refactor Modules

# Move libs/my-feature-lib to libs/shared/my-feature-lib
nx g @nrwl/workspace:move --project my-feature-lib shared/my-feature-lib
nx g @nrwl/workspace:move --project api yeti-api
# Remove my-feature-lib from the workspace:
nx g @nrwl/workspace:remove my-feature-lib --dry-run
# Force removal of my-feature-lib from the workspace:
nx g @nrwl/workspace:remove my-feature-lib --forceRemove

Generate Components

nx g component todos --project=ui --export # add a component to the newly created ui library

Generate workspace schematics

# Generates a workspace schematic
nx g @nrwl/workspace:workspace-schematic name --dry-run

Run commands

For Single Project

# Long form
nx run todos:serve # default configuration
nx run todos:serve:production # producttion configuration
nx run todos:build
nx run todos:lint
nx run todos:e2e
nx run todos:test
nx run todos:generate-docs # run any custom command with `@nrwl/workspace:run-commands`
# short form
nx serve todos
nx serve todos --configuration=production
nx serve todos --prod
nx build todos
nx build todos --with-deps # same as `nx run-many --target=build --projects=todos --with-deps`
nx lint todos
nx e2e todos
nx test todos

For Multiple Projects

nx run-many --target=build --all # Run the same target for all projects.
nx run-many --target=build --all --parallel --maxParallel=8 # Run the same target for all projects in parallel.
nx run-many --target=build --projects=app1,app2 # Run the same target for selected projects.
nx run-many --target=build --projects=app1,app2 --with-deps # Run the same target for selected projects and their deps.
nx run-many --target=build --all --only-failed # Run the same target for the projects that failed last time.
nx run-many --target=build --all --prod # Any flags you pass to run-many that aren't Nx specific will be passed down to the builder.

For Affected Projects

The print-affected and run-many commands can be used to set up your CI to use multiple agents, while still rebuilding and retesting only what is affected.
nx affected --target=build # Run the same target for all the projects by the current code change (e.g., current Git branch).
nx affected --target=build --parallel --maxParallel=8 # Same but in parallel.
# By default, the current code change is defined as a diff between master and HEAD. You can change it as follows:
nx affected --target=build --parallel --maxParallel=8 --base=origin/development --head=$CI_BRANCH_NAME
# Running affected commands is very common, so Nx comes with a few shortcuts.
nx affected:build
nx affected:test
nx affected:lint
nx affected:e2e
# Any flags you pass to run-many that aren't Nx specific will be passed down to the builder.
nx affected --target=build --prod

Other Commands
