During a debugging session, you launch your application or file with the debugger attached to it. The debugger interferes the program execution and provides you with the information on what is happening under the hood. This facilitates the process of detecting and fixing bugs in your program.
No matter what kind of code you are debugging, your experience with the WebStorm debugger is the same - you just put breakpoints and step through your actual source code even if you then compile it, WebStorm takes care of source maps.
WebStorm supports debugging client-side applications running on the built-in or an external web server. Debugging can be performed only using Google Chrome and other browsers of the Chrome family.
