Python script to run multiple servers simultaneously on a local machine on Mac.

There are a number of times we have a bunch of servers we need to run to fully run an application, yes i am talking about the microservice arch. It's annoying to go to each repo and get the server running. Below is the script for making it automated.


Script that starts the servers from the "services" array.
services = [
    "name": "service_name",
    "path": "path_to_service",
    "command": "command_to_run",
for a single server, please pass the name of the service to start...

# uncomment if on mac os..
# os.system("say 'booting shopini servers'")
os.system("sleep 1")

n = len(sys.argv)

serverCommand = ""
for service in services:
    if n > 1:
        if service["name"] != sys.argv[1]:

    # say = "say 'booting " + service["name"] + " server'"
    # os.system(say)
        "ttab.sh -w -t '"
        + service["name"]
        + "' -d "
        + service["path"]
        + " "
        + service["command"]

# os.system(
#     "say 'all shopini servers are running at there full potentials, have a nice day!'"
# )
# kill command: kill -9 $(lsof -ti:5100)
