Search and destroy in bash

I’ve been doing a lot of web development using the Django framework lately. I’m a big fan of Python and Django since it enables you to quickly get results and keeping the code and file arrangement structure nice and tidy. When I’m trying to figure out what data I’m messing with I’m usually using the Python debugger pdb. When using the django development server and pdb it sometimes causes spawning new server instances when it restarts the server (after code changes) which prevents you to restart the server with CTRL+C.

So today IĀ found a bash phrase which does a ps aux looking for Django instances and stopping them.

This can be applied to many other situations where things needs to be restarted or killed. Thank you Stackoverflow!
