It was getting old opening a terminal each time I wanted to startup my node app. Now, I realize it’s not THAT much work to plug a few commands into a few open terminal windows. But for a full time programmer….it matters. Every little second you can shave off ends up being semi large block of time over the course of a week. And it’s just fun to figure out more efficient ways of doing things.
I got sick of opening terminals manually so I wrote this little gulpfile. So now I only need 1 terminal. And simply run the gulp command to startup my app.
