    node-repl

    an interactive repl for debugging node programs.

    run a node program but also attach a repl to the same context that your code runs in so you can inspect + mess with stuff as your program is running

    available as a command-line tool

    NPM

    currently this only works on node >=0.12 and iojs as it uses a generator to make the eval loop preserve scope.

    installation

    npm install node-repl -g

    CLI usage

    $ node-repl
    Usage: node-repl <filename>
     
    $ node-repl your-program.js
    >

    example

    suppose we have a program called hello.js that has these contents:

    var pizza = 1

    if you run node-repl hello.js you will get a repl, just like when you run node.

    The difference is that this repl is running in the same context as your program.

    $ node-repl hello.js
    > 1 + 1 // we are in a node repl
    2
    > pizza // we can access variables in our program
    1
    >
