Node.js Remote Debugging in Node.JS NodeJS run configuration


To set up Node remote debugging, simply run the node process with the --debug flag. You can add a port on which the debugger should run using --debug=<port>.

When your node process starts up you should see the message

Debugger listening on port <port>

Which will tell you that everything is good to go.

Then you set up the remote debugging target in your specific IDE.
