Script to kill all GradleDaemon processes – gkill

GradleDaemon sometimes redundantly runs in the background and Grails gives erroneous responses. The simplest solution is to kill all the errant GradleDaemon processes and run the app again. Below is a simple script which will run all the errant GradleDaemon processes. The same can be used for killing any processes like say Firefox. Just substitute GradleDaemon with firefox.

# Kills all GradleDaemon processes without mercy
