Compile and package Angular libraries in Angular Package Format (APF)

npm npm License CircleCI

GitHub stars npm Downloads Renovate enabled


npm install -D ng-packagr

Usage Example

Let's walk through a getting started that'll build an Angular library from TypeScript sources and create a distribution-ready npm package: create a ng-package.json file and run ng-packagr -p ng-package.json – Here we go:

  "$schema": "./node_modules/ng-packagr/ng-package.schema.json",

You can easily run ng-packagr through a npm/yarn script:

  "scripts": {
    "build": "ng-packagr -p ng-package.json"

Now, execute the build with the following command:

$ yarn build

The build output is written to the dist folder, containing all those binaries to meet the Angular Package Format specification. You'll now be able to go ahead and npm publish dist your Angular library to the npm registry.

Do you like to publish more libraries? Is your code living in a monorepo? Create one package.json per npm package, run ng-packagr for each!

Contributing to ng-packagr

General contribution guidelines

If you like to submit a pull request, you'll find it helpful to take a look at the initial design document where it all started.

To orchestrate the different tools, ng-packagr features a custom transformation pipeline. The transformation pipeline is built on top of RxJS and Angular Dependency Injection concepts.
