Start inner server with debug enabled #412

This patch adds support for node-inspector debugging of Meteor apps.

It adds --debug and --debug_brk as options for meteor run.

The options are passed from meteor.js to global variables in run.js via bundle_options. Not sure if that is the right way to do it, but it seemed like the least intrusive mechanism.

In run.js the inner server is then started in plain vanilla, debug or debug-brk mode, depending on command line option (if any) specified.

Then node-inspector can be started, and it will attach to the inner server.

I added the --debug and --debug-brk options to meteor run, based off your pull request. I did take the liberty of changing the underscore to a dash, to match node's behavior :)

When will this fix be included in curl https://install.meteor.com | /bin/sh?
Or maybe it's available now? If yes, how should I start meteor in run mode to be able to debug server side code?


glasser commented Feb 14, 2013

We ended up reverting that and (as of 0.5.3) just allowing you to set a $NODE_OPTIONS environment variable, which you can put '--debug' or '--debug-brk' or whatever into.

segrey commented Feb 14, 2013

Thanks. It works as expected.

Just a note that deployed apps don't take into account $NODE_OPTIONS, and you should pass --debug to node. This becomes trickier if you use forever, pm2 or some other monitor/runnner.
