RubyMine 7.0.1 Web Help

In this dialog box, create configurations for debugging already running Node.js applications. This approach gives you the possibility to re-start a debugging session without re-starting the NodeJS server.

Getting Access to the Run/Debug Configuration: NodeJS Remote Debug Dialog Box

  1. Install and enable the Node.js plugin.

    The plugin is not bundled with RubyMine, but it is available from the RubyMine plugin repository. Once enabled, the plugin is available at the IDE level, that is, you can use it in all your RubyMine projects. See Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins for details.

  2. Download and install the NodeJS framework that contains the Node Package Manager(npm).

Common Options

Item Description
Name In this text box, specify the name of the current run/debug configuration. This field does not appear for the default run/debug configurations.
Defaults This node in the left-hand pane of the dialog box contains the default run/debug configuration settings. Select the desired configuration to change its default settings in the right-hand pane. The defaults are applied to all newly created run/debug configurations.
Share Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.

The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under .idea\runConfigurations folder, while the local run/debug configurations are kept in the .idea\workspace.xml.

This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.

Single instance only If this check box is selected, this run/debug configuration cannot be launched more than once.

Every time a new run/debug configuration is launched, RubyMine checks the presence of the other instances of the same run/debug configuration, and displays a confirmation dialog box. If you click OK in the confirmation dialog box, the first instance of the runner will be stopped, and the next one will take its place.

This make sense, when usage of certain resources can cause conflicts, or when launching two run/debug configurations of the same type consumes too much of the CPU and memory resources.

If this check box is not selected, it is possible to launch as many instances of the runner as required. So doing, each runner will start in its own tab of the Run tool window.

Before launch Specify which tasks must be performed before applying the run/debug configuration. The specified tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
