VS2019 Node.js TypeScript Newbie Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is anybody else using VS2019 for development of apps in Node.js TypeScript?

    I am asking this question as I find I am still opening a DOS window and running the app manually using node. At least this way I can see the console window. So does anybody have any tips on how to use VS2019 to debug Node.js Typescript apps? With other languages I am used to being able to set a “break in class module” switch, so that when something goes wrong you can see rapidly and exactly where something went wrong.  

    Any suggestions for a newbie how to debug node.js apps would be  very welcome.
