Daemonise

Use this library to run any process in the background without blocking the console. It will start a child process, detach it, and save its PID to daemonise.json in order to be able to stop it later.

Installation

yarn add avris-daemonise

Usage

The following command:

node_modules/.bin/avris-daemonise start webserver node_modules/.bin/webpack-dev-server \\--config ./webpack.config.js

will execute node_modules/.bin/webpack-dev-server --config ./webpack.config.js in the background and save the PID to ./daemonise.json under the name webserver.

Note that the dashes have to be escaped with a double backslash (\\--option), otherwise they are treated as options for daemonise and not for the child process.

stdout and stderr will be saved to ./daemonise.log. You can change it with the --log option.

To stop the server, execute:

node_modules/.bin/avris-daemonise stop webserver

Suggested .gitignore entries:

/daemonise.json
/daemonise.log
