Earlier when I was new to development I used to open two terminals whenever I have to run two separate commands. Let's say one for the react application and one for the express server and always used to think about how can I run both of them together and then I came to know about concurrently using which you can run multiple commands and that too in the same terminal. So, that will help you a lot if you are looking to run multiple NPM commands at the same time.
If you have been stuck like me searching for a way to run multiple commands at the same time, then you’re at the right place. This has been saving me a lot of time. There is no setup required. It is like plug-and-play. So easy to get started but solves a major problem. Creating multiple servers in one terminal was never easier. Strongly recommended.
As the name suggests it can run multiple npm scripts simultaneously. This has been saving me a great deal of time. There is no arrangement required. It is a hassle free process, just by writing single line of code in package.json you can run multiple scripts. A must use package if you are working on both frontend and backend. Highly recommended.
I use concurrently whenever I need to run npm scripts parallelly like when building out server files written in ES6 and UI files to build to locations which the Server can pick up. All it takes to get this up and running is to set the npm script to use concurrently CLI to use the other scripts as arguments. It’s a one time set up by the way.
As the name suggests it serves the same. Using different commands at the same time is what makes this package a must try .Cross platform tool which allows us to have full control and makes running different servers at the same time very effective.It was something which i was looking for. Highly recommended.
I used this to run multiple scripts in CLI terminal when writing node.js applications. Its easy to use from my beginner’s perspective. Also with npx I don’t have to install it globally to use the package. I mainly use this in monorepos. The readme has all the documentation I need hence very much useful.
This package helps me to run multiple commands sequentially or parallelly which is almost all the time. The hassle-free solution is very useful if you are using a monorepo. Setup time cost is not that much. Strongly recommended for everyone to try this out in your projects. Keep it as a dev-dependency.
If you are searching for a way to run multiple commands at the same time, Concurrently is the way to go. This package has saved me a lot of time. Creating multiple servers in one terminal is my most favourite feature in concurrently package.
The name itself describes the work that it can run multiple commands simultaneously which can save your lot of priceless time. The best thing about is creating multiple servers in one terminal is easier. Strongly recommended.
I have used this package in one of my projects, I use this when I need to put one command to start both my backend and frontend on the same terminal window, although it has limited use cases, it performs well, never experienced any bug or issue and easy saw all the logs on the same terminal window. For me it was a nice experience, and would recommend it to anyone. would love to use it again!
