To get the debugger you need to enable the debug mode like this:
"Set JS server debug mode" thisSnippet database properties jsLinkSettings serverDebugMode: true.
If there are errors, it can be useful to stop the current link:
To check that the node process is running in the correct folder, take a look at this command:
var cwd = process.cwd(); cwd;
Consider this simple execution. Please inspect it:
let aVariable = 1; aVariable + 40 + 1
And now inspect the same code with a breakpoint in the script:
let aVariable = 1; debugger; aVariable + 40 + 1
Now take a look at this slightly more complicated script that relies on an external file that also happens to contain a breakpoint:
let TestClass = require('../gtoolkit/testclass'); let testObject = new TestClass(); debugger; testObject.factorial(3);
The external code can be found at:
FileLocator imageDirectory asFileReference / 'js' / 'src' / 'gtoolkit' / 'testclass.js'
