Debugging Meteor using WebStorm - how?


#1

Either my brain is missing something simple, or JetBrains’ documentation could use some work. I for the life of me can’t figure out how debugging in WebStorm works.

I’ve set a breakpoint that I know will be hit, and I click the bug icon instead of the play/run icon. I get a debugger at the bottom, but the breakpoints I set seem to have no effect. I have the JetBrains extension installed in Chrome. Is there something I’m missing?

I desperately need to debug a situation that Chrome is not helping with, since blackboxing is broken, and I simply don’t have time to step through dozens of lines of third party code.

Did you update your app to Meteor 1.2 ? Because 1.2 breaks Webstorm debugger. Reference to https://www.reddit.com/r/Meteor/comments/3n08tu/psa_meteor_12_upgrade_breaks_webstorm_10_debugger/
