Retrieve LWC using Ant Migration tool or mdapi:retrieve command from SFDX

This is going to be a short post but very important as this is related to LWC which is a very powerful product but not much help available on Internet to the date.

This article will help us retrieving Lightning Web Components using Ant Migration tool or mdapi:retrieve command from SFDX.

The SFDX: Create Project with Manifest command DOES NOT include Lightning Component Bundle in the package.xml it creates. So while it will create a force-app/lwc directory it will not retrieve anything.

Solution:

The new Metadata API component is called LightningComponentBundle.
The following XML code should be added to package.xml:

<types>
    <members>*</members>
    <name>LightningComponentBundle</name>
</types>
