In VS code there are two ways to launch the debug console for Node. One is “launch” which executes node and passes in your script. The script executes and node exits which i don’t want to happen. The other way is “attach”, this way you launch node yourself using --inspect then attach VS code to the debugger. Then I have to go to the node console and type “.load myscript”. This will keep the node console open after the script has finished.
What I want is to have ease of use of the “launch” method but keep the node console open at the end like the “attach” approach so I can then type further commands or view the contents of variables. There must be a way to do this but I can’t find out how. Can anyone advise how I could achieve this? I am even happy to only use the “launch” method if I could someone add a breakpoint at the end of code so that it would keep node open.
