Debug with VSCode: Angular5 and Node Apps

DEBUG VS CODE — Angular5

Step #01: Install Extension

Step #02: Start the angular app

$ node use -v 9$ npm start> apex@4.1.0 start /Users/pabloinchausti/Desktop/DevOps/code/github/PabloEzequiel/UELA-Upsala
> ng serve --environment=fix --port 4800 -aot

Step #03: Add launch configuration

{    "type": "chrome",
"request": "launch",
"name": "Launch Chrome",
"url": "http://localhost:4800",
"webRoot": "${workspaceFolder}"

Step #04: Run and Breakpoint

Chrome is waiting


{"type": "node",
"request": "attach",
"name": "backend attach",
"processId": "${command:PickProcess}"
{"type": "node",
"request": "launch",
"name": "backend nodemon",
"runtimeExecutable": "nodemon",
"program": "${workspaceFolder}/backend/index.js",
"restart": true,
"console": "integratedTerminal",
"internalConsoleOptions": "neverOpen"
},{"type": "node",
"request": "launch",
"name": "backend node",
"program": "${workspaceFolder}/backend/index.js"
}{"type": "node",
"request": "attach",
"name": "backend attach",
"port": 8526
the browser is waiting the breakpoint

AGAIN: I will show the same thing again, but with a refinement

DEBUG Node&Express projects with VS Code

╰─$ cat!/bin/bashPORT=44455echo "----------------------------------------------"
echo " Run with nodemon to enable debug in vscode "
echo "----------------------------------------------"
echo " - PORT: ${PORT} "
echo " - VS Code launch
\"type\": \"node\",
\"request\": \"attach\",
\"name\": \"backend attach://pid\",
\"processId\": \"${command:PickProcess}\",
\"restart\": true, // To nodemon
echo "----------------------------------------------"
node --versionnodemon --inspect-brk=${PORT} index.js
the debugger is up…but not the server:
VS Code discover nodemon running…
server runnig (with nodemon) and attached to the debugger
breakpoint is working!
nodemon and vscode debugger both reloaded

DEBUG Angular5 projects with VS Code

"type": "chrome",
"request": "launch",
"name": "frontend chrome",
"url": "http://localhost:4800",
"webRoot": "${workspaceFolder}/UELA-app5"
both debugger angular5 and backend nodemon
the breakpoint for the front is ready
