Extension for launching V8 Inspector for Node.js debugging
Node.js V8 Inspector is a Chrome extension for attaching DevTools to running Node.js applications (requires Node v6.3.0). After installing this extension, debug your application using the following steps: 1. Run a Node.js application with the --inspect command line flag. 2. Open the node-v8-inspector extension in Chrome. 3. Verify that host and port match your application's host and debug port. The default value is 9229, the same default used by Node.js. The host defaults to localhost. 4. Press Launch V8 Inspector button. 5. Debug your application. 6. Profit (optional). Source code at https://github.com/continuationlabs/node-v8-inspector

- (2017-06-17) Edward Diehl: Thanks for the extension! Very helpful for node.js developers!
- (2017-05-17) Michael Richardson: I'm recently coming to understand that Node 6.x and 7.x use very different debuggers and some combination of the older debugger, chrome and devtools are such that things are largely broken if you try to use this with Node 6.x (LTS). I think that's why my experience with this was poor. I have not tried with Node 7.x though.

- (2016-08-15) Paul Oldridge: Doesn't allow you to specify a server IP, only a port. Useless if you're not running node on localhost.

- (2016-07-03) Matt Harrison: I couldn't find my glasses but luckily the button was big and blue, so no sweat.
- (2016-06-08) Colin Ihrig: As previous reviews noted, the button is big and blue. It doesn't get much better than that.
- (2016-06-08) Wyatt Lyon Preul: The best big blue button you will find.
