    easy-fork Build Status codecov

    Easily fork node process to run scripts concurrently

    Why

    Sometimes you want to run multiple node processes at once. For example

    • Type-checking command like tsc --project src
    • Bundler command like parcel src --out-dir build
    • Server starting command like onchange build --initial -- node build/start.js

    There are several ways to solve this:

    • Make npm/yarn scripts and run them independently

      • Probably the "healthy" way. But it is annoying to open terminals and run these command one by one.
    • Gulp

      • Using exposed APIs is usually takes more effort than CLI commands.
    • command1 & command2 & command3 & ...

      • Sending SIGTERM does not kill all processes.

    With easy-fork, you can pass multiple CLI commands to run them concurrently, and now all you have to do is run the script.
