Bench Procfile

bench start uses honcho to manage multiple processes in developer mode.


The various process that are needed to run frappe are:

  1. bench start - the web server
  2. redis_cache for caching (general)
  3. redis_queue for managing queue for background workers
  4. redis_socketio as a message broker for real-time updates / updates from background workers
  5. web for the frappe web server.
  6. socketio for real-time messaging.
  7. schedule to trigger periodic tasks
  8. worker_* redis workers to handle async jobs

Optionally if you are developing for frappe you can add:

bench watch to automatically build the desk javascript app.
