Auto re-loading of node apps with node-inspector


Nodev is a wrapper for nodemon and node-inspector. It will automatically start Node.js process in debug mode and start node-inspector attached to it.


$ sudo npm install -g nodev


Start with default settings:

$ nodev ./app.js

This will start your script as Node.js application with --debug=7000 option. To start application paused at first line use:

$ nodev --debug-brk ./app.js

This will start your application as if it was executed with --debug-brk=7000 option.
