Debug your node apps using your version of jasmine tests (Jasmine is not packaged by this component, but node-inspector is!)

  • This package has been tested with latest versions of both node-inspector and jasmine
  • It should be installed globally to provide you with a global command line


npm install -g jasmine-node-debug


You call it exactly like you would jasmine (effectively the args are passed directly to Jasmine)

e.g. If your specs are not in the default spec folder

jasmine-node-debug JASMINE_CONFIG_PATH=other/spec/support/jasmine.json

or if they are in the defalt location, simply!


The console will inform you of the url to open in a browser of your choice.

You node app will break on the first line (--debug-brk)
