Mprocs – Run and Execute Multiple Commands in Parallel Like a Ninja Geek for Efficient Task Management

5/5 - (25 votes)

But what a mess all those open terminals on your computer! There are so many commands to launch simultaneously on the same machine, and you risk getting confused and mixing up your tasks while juggling between terminals.

However, I have the perfect solution for you!

Introducing Mprocs, a fantastic free tool that enables you to execute multiple commands or processes in parallel. Unlike other tools like Concurrently, Mprocs has a unique advantage up its sleeve. It allows you to view the output of each command separately and interact with the launched processes. This means you can even work in Vim while using Mprocs. Isn’t that beautiful?

It works on Linux, macOS and Windows and to use it, you can simply chain commands like this:

mprocs "yarn test -w" "webpack serve"

Or simply make an mprocs.yaml file which will contain all your commands:

    cmd: ["nvim"]
    shell: "nodemon server.js"
  webpack: "webpack serve"
    shell: "jest -w"
      NODE_ENV: test

And that will be taken into account when you run:
