Overmind and Hivemind, Procfile-based process managers for local web development


Procfile, introduced by David Dollar's foreman, is a popular format for declaring processes—everyone who ever used Heroku, knows it well. Anyone who didn't, really should learn it—it's an easy way to declare all the stuff that is needed to run your project (web app, additional apps, background processing, tools and daemons) and launch it.
