Run/Debug Configuration: Spy-js
In this dialog box, create configurations for tracing Web applications using the Spy-js tool.
Before you start
Spy-js-specific configuration settings
| In this field, specify the Node.js interpreter to use. This can be a local Node.js interpreter or a Node.js on Windows Subsystem for Linux. |
With Spy-js, it is recommended that you use Node.js version 0.10.24 or later.
Trace server port
In this spin box, specify the port on which Spy-js will act as a proxy server.
The trace server port is filled in automatically. This port number must be the same as your system proxy port. To avoid port conflicts, it is recommended that you accept the suggested value and keep the Automatically configure system proxy checkbox selected so that the specified port number is automatically set for the system proxy server. Otherwise you will have to turn off automatic proxy configuration in your system proxy settings and specify the trace server port as the system proxy port.
| In this field, specify the way to configure a tracing session. |
URL to trace
In this field, specify the URL address of the Web page to capture events on. By default, the field is empty. This means that Spy-js captures events on all the currently opened Web pages. If you want to restrict the tracing to a certain page, specify its URL address. Type the address manually or choose it from the drop-down list, if it has been once specified in the configuration.
Automatically configure system proxy
The checkbox is selected by default, and it is strongly recommended that you accept this setting and have the proxy configured automatically.
When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options:
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your solution as well as adjust default configurations templates.
Create a run/debug configuration.
Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.
Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.
The button is displayed only when you select a temporary configuration. Click this button to save a temporary configuration as permanent.
View and edit the template (that is, the default settings) for the selected run/debug configuration. The templates are displayed under the Templates node and used for newly created configurations.
Move the selected run/debug configuration up and down in the list.
The order of configurations in the list defines the order, in which the configurations appear when you choose a run/debug configuration.
Default templates of run/debug configurations are always sorted alphabetically.
Move into new folder / Create new folder. You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click , and specify the folder name. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag or and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.
In this area you can specify tasks that must be performed before starting the selected run/debug configuration. The tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
Click this icon to add one of the following available tasks:
Click this icon to remove the selected task from the list.
Click this icon to edit the selected task. Make the necessary changes in the dialog that opens.
Click these icons to move the selected task one line up or down in the list. (The tasks are performed in the order that they appear in the list.)
Show this page
Select this checkbox to show the run/debug configuration settings prior to actually starting the run/debug configuration.
Activate tool window
Otherwise, if the checkbox is cleared, the tool window isn't shown. However, when the configuration is running, you can open the corresponding tool window for it yourself by pressing Alt+4 or Alt+5.
