stopping Zotero Translation Server

How do I stop the Zotero Translation Server when I started it with npm start &?

https://github.com/zotero/translation-server has instructions for stopping under Docker, but not Node.js.

I'm new to Node.js, and what I've found by Googling expects there to be a stop script (I'm at least not recognizing it if there is one) or tells me to use fg and Ctrl-C. But once I've closed my terminal app, fg doesn't find it when I go back in.

It just feels untidy of me to leave it running when I'm not using it.
  • Better to post questions like this to zotero-dev — we try to keep technical discussions there — but this also isn't really a Zotero question at all. There are countless ways to run processes in the background on Linux (if that's what you're using), they depend entirely on your distro and personal preferences, and it's not the sort of thing we can help with here. (& would not be the solution, though.) If you don't know how to do this and/or aren't using Linux, it's easiest to just use Docker, which has process management built in.

    Thanks. I'll assume there isn't a stop script, then.
