Node debug example

Does any documentation exist outlining how to debug node executables beyond the videos that @tolusha created?

Hi, have you seen: https://medium.com/gitpod/debugging-node-js-applications-in-theia-76c94c76f0a1

it is the same as in VS Code, so you can refer to VS Code docs as well

Thanks, I wasnt aware of that post. I was more after the commands and foo needed to debug a node app in pure Theia, but we got to the bottom of it with the --inspect-brk flag :slight_smile:

i see, there are official docs from Node.js: https://nodejs.org/en/docs/guides/debugging-getting-started/#command-line-options
