    if possible I would like to suggest to give some thoughts to the dark theme Darcula
    some places are not very distinct – scroll-bar slider is almost invisible till you grab it
    scroll-bar vcs and warnings marks are 3D which looks good only when there are few of them

    Thanks for your great work. Version 127.27 seems to have made a change in node debugging for typescript sources, I used to have a .js entry point with “require” of files coded as .ts, something like

    var Test= require(“./Test”);
    var t= new Test.TestClass;

    in program.js node startup file, where Test.ts is part of my project.
    In previous versions if I stepped into ex.DoSomething() or set a breakpoint in Test.ts I could debug Test.ts source. In version 127.27 the debugger steps into (tsc generated) Test.js. If I set a breakpoint in Test.ts the debugger does not stop, if I set a breakpoint in (tsc generated) Test.js the debugger stops.
    I tried to create a .ts entry point to configure, but WebStorm passes the .ts file to node, which is working only if the .ts file is legit javascript, but the code above becomes


    import Test= module(“Test”);

    and node throws an error.

    How can I setup a node project using TypeScript and debugging .ts files?
    Thanks a lot.

      Does (tsc generated) Test.js contain reference to source map (sourceMappingURL)? If you want to debug Typescript, please compile it with flag -sourcemap (tsc -sourcemap Test.ts).

      • sroncolini says:

        March 4, 2013

        Yes, Test.js does contain the reference

        //@ sourceMappingURL=Test.js.map

        The problem is not in the main (startup) file but in the imported (TS) \ required (JS) files in my project. This behavior is new in last version, TS debugging was working in previous versions. Thanks.

    It’s awesome. I love new ws. BUT firstly, i couldnt find new local-bundled-server link or button in app. I can use that only if i remember the localhost link. And i couldnt use debug in ws6 because chrome cannot find the connection. Maybe norton security 2013 blocks it but i allowed everything of webstorm. I think ws have problems with norton. You should test it.
