I have a server that I would like launch from Livecode. I've tried shell(),
launch, open process, and then creatign bash scripts ending with "&" or
using screen... no joy so far...

In the terminal I run:

hugo server

and a little go server runs and does it's magic. But try as I can nothing I
do let's me launch the server from Livecode - without the script waiting
for the never ending process to end and interface freezing.

Was about to launch into the world of tmux, or trying Applescript :( Any
