This example project is a super-simple example of how I used
to graphically debug a previous employer's simple web projects
- Pow installed
- Customized gems installed (see Gemfile for details)
Add example preamble to config.ru of a pow-linked app
Load target project in Rubymine and construct a "Configuration" with your project name using the "Ruby remote debug" defaults
Ensure an appropriate Rubymine breakpoint is set somewhere in your sinatra app
Navigate a browser instance to your pow app's root (should wait - waiting for RubyMine's debugger client to connect)
In Rubymine press "Debug" for the Rubymine "Configuration" you constructed above
Rubymine should then halt on the pow request as required.
Note: This example assumes the POW_WORKERS variable is set to 1 (one). If multiple workers are active you may get errors that ruby-debug-ide could not attach to a port already in use.
Pow-worker / ruby-debug-ide / Rubymine remote debug client port mappings are therefore left as an exercise to the reader. So too, pow timeout parameters.
