Run Multiple Terminal Commands at the Same Time with Concurrently
I've always opened two terminals to run a backend and frontend locally. It's not the worst thing in my workflow, but I love finding things to make it all a little smoother. Concurrently is an npm package that lets you run any commands at the same time.
Like npm run watch-js & npm run watch-less but better.
From their example:
concurrently "npm:watch-js" "npm:watch-css" "npm:watch-node"
Learned this from Brad Traversy while watching his GraphQL series - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XwkFm5a9lw
