Debugging the example-electron application

I’m wondering if anyone had success debugging the example-electron application.
I attempted to use the launch electron backend debug configuration but when running, Electron simply hangs and displays the loading animation.

If anyone has any ideas let me know! :slight_smile:

@thegecko @kittaakos you both have a lot more Electron knowledge, were you able to debug Electron successfully yourselves?

I have not used it in a while. It can be outdated. Please file an issue to fix it.

It works fine for us. Remember that debug profile will only debug the backend plugins, not the frontend ‘browser’ ones. To do that you need to open the chrome inspector or attach VSCode to the chrome debug port.
