Node.js and WebStorm

WebStorm has a node.js module integrated. It is very easy to run and debug applications from within WebStorm.

1. Creating a New Project

Create a new project and choose the project type “Empty project”. There are node.js project types, but don't use them as they use external frameworks we don't want to use at the moment.

2. Adding a JavaScript File

Once the project is created you can add a new JavaScript file to the project. Let's name this file “main.js”.

3. Run Configuration

Now we need to create a run configuration, which basically tells WebStorm to use node.js and our “main.js” as application. The run configuration window is opened using “Run/Edit Configurations…” menu.

4. Run and Debug the Application

Now you can run the application.

Extend the application by a few lines and add breakpoints.

Now start the debugger and you can step through your application. You can check your local variables or add watches etc…
