Use classic batch file to start multiple applications


Here is a short batch script that starts a whole application stack including MongoDB server, two NodeJS applications and opens up a browser with the start url of the application.

start "MongoDB" "C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\4.2\bin\mongod.exe" --dbpath c:\data\db\mongodb
start "NodeJS-API" /D "c:\nodejs-api" nodemon.cmd c:\nodejs-api\index.js
start "NodeJS-WEBAPP" /D "c:\nodejs-webapp" nodemon.cmd c:\nodejs-webapp\index.js

start firefox http://localhost:3001
