There're two ways to do this:

First
Use the following command to end the running process.

ctrl + c

Second
When the process is running as background process, use the ps command to find the process ID then use the PID to kill the process.

ps -ef | grep "ng serve"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The output will look like this:

 501 25782 23667   0  5:04PM ttys000    0:22.54 ng serve  
 501 25790 23408   0  5:05PM ttys001    0:00.01 grep ng serve
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then use this command to stop ng serve.

kill 25782
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Ouch. No need for such a brutal death (SIGKILL). Just give the process a chance to end his life with a smooth SIGTERM:

kill 25782
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
