Better App Platform integration with NX monorepo


There’s two feature I would like to see in App Platform. To resume it’s a good integration with NX workspace/monorepo.

  • Fetch only once npm dependencies for all components in a monorepo. I’m using a NX monorepo for a Angular and multiple NestJS projects. I see that during build/deploy in App Platform, npm dependencies are fetched for each components which impact build/deploy performances and reduce a lot build minutes.

  • Tell App Platform to build/deploy only some components. All components are actually rebuilt/redeployed on each push, is it possible to tell App Platform to not rebuild/redeploy some component in some conditions ? Nx provide a nice feature which allow us to only run command over affected projects it could be awesome to use it in App Platform.

Thanks !

Hi @scorsi, thank you for the feedback! I have logged it in our internal feature tracker.

For the second suggestion, how would you want to select which components to rebuild?
