VsCode - Debugger (Launch.json)

Card Puncher Data Processing


Debugger in VsCode.

launch.json is the configuration file to launch/or attach a debugger session



launch.json file under the workspace's .vscode folder


VS Code debuggers typically support:

  • launch ie launching a program in debug mode
  • or attach - ie attaching to an already running program.

The only difference between “launch” and “attach” is that “launch” first guesses where chrome is, and starts it at your location. Then attaches to it, and everything is the same after that.


With the --inspect-brk option, Node.js stops on the first line of the program.



If no source map exists for the original source or if the source map is broken and cannot successfully map between the source and the generated JavaScript, then breakpoints show up as unverified (gray hollow circles).
