Open all your favorite apps at once #Linux #bash

If you are a developer you should know the DRY concept which stands for

DRY — DON’T REPEAT YOURSELF

But, everyday we used to open our needed apps one by one. For example Skype, Teams, Terminal, Browsers, IntelliJ etc.

Adding them in the startup is not a good idea since, we might not use all these apps at all time. So what we could do is to create a custom file which can open up all our favorite apps.

nano openDevApps.sh

The applications you have installed can be seen in the following directory

usr/bin

you can add multiple applications using “&”, here is an example

GNU nano 4.8                                 openDevApps.sh                                            
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/terminator &
/usr/bin/firefox &
/usr/bin/google-chrome &
/usr/bin/teams &
/opt/Postman/Postman &

exit 0

You could also create multiple bash files like this for different aspects and run them whenever you need.

sh openDevApps.sh

That’s all here.
