Launching a cli server as background process in OSX

Thanks Francois - but this is not the issue as the shell function works in
that the server is launched via:

*put shell ("hugo server")*


The issue is that as the shell command runs until you forcibly exit - the
Livecode handler freezes and no other scripts or user actions can run - so
I want to run the server in the background.
See thee links for tutorials that I've looked into for how to run bash
scrips in the background:
