Installing with schematics

You can install the @ngxs/store using ng-add schematic

ng add @ngxs/store

Note: This command will prompt you to choose the plugins you want to install and the name of the project you want to use NGXS with.

You have the option to enter the options yourself

ng add @ngxs/store --plugins DEVTOOLS,FORM --project angular-ngxs-project
OptionDescriptionDefault Value


Name of the project as it is defined in your angular.json

Comma separate the plugins as appear below

Plugins to optionally install using the schematics

  • Ngxs developer tools plugin

  • Ngxs form plugin

  • Ngxs HMR plugin

  • Ngxs logger plugin

  • Ngxs router plugin

  • Ngxs storage plugin

  • Ngxs websocket plugin

You can find more information about plugins on the plugins page.

🪄 This command will:

  • Update package.json dependencies with @ngxs/store

  • Update package.json dependencies with the selected plugins

  • Install dependencies by executing npm install

If your project is standalone one:

  • Update the providers array of your selected project with provideStore([])

If your application is module based:

  • Update the imports array of your app.module.ts with NgxsModule.forRoot([])

Manual Installation

To get started, install the package from npm. The latest version (3.x) supports Angular/RxJS 6+.

npm i @ngxs/store

# or if you are using yarn
yarn add @ngxs/store

# or if you are using pnpm
pnpm i @ngxs/store

Then, in your app.config.ts, add the provideStore to the list of providers:

import { provideStore } from '@ngxs/store';

export const appConfig: ApplicationConfig = {
  providers: [provideStore()]

When you provide the store at the root level, you can pass root states along with options. If you are lazy loading, you can use the provideStates option with the same arguments.

Options such as developmentMode can be passed to the module as the second argument in the provideStore function. In development mode, plugin authors can add additional runtime checks/etc to enhance the developer experience. Switching to development mode will also freeze your store using deep-freeze-strict module.

It's important that you add provideStore at the root level even if all of your states are feature states.

Development Builds

Our continuous integration server runs all tests on every commit to master and if they pass it will publish a new development build to NPM and tag it with the @dev tag.

This means that if you want the bleeding edge of @ngxs/store or any of the plugins you can simply do:

npm install @ngxs/store@dev
npm install @ngxs/logger-plugin@dev
npm install @ngxs/devtools-plugin@dev

# or if you are using yarn
yarn add @ngxs/store@dev
yarn add @ngxs/logger-plugin@dev
yarn add @ngxs/devtools-plugin@dev

# of if you want to update multiple things at the same time
yarn add @ngxs/{store,logger-plugin,devtools-plugin}@dev

# or if you are using pnpm
pnpm install @ngxs/store@dev
pnpm install @ngxs/logger-plugin@dev
pnpm install @ngxs/devtools-plugin@dev

This will install the version currently tagged as @dev. Your package.json file will be locked to that specific version.

  "dependencies": {
    "@ngxs/store": "3.0.0-dev.a0d076d"

If you later want to again update to the bleeding edge, you will have to run the above command again.
