gulpfile.ts instead of
Running Gulp tasks written with TypeScript is the same as before
gulp my.task and actual code of your task will be inside
my.task.ts. What will happen is that this
ts-node module will do some magic probably compile in memory the
gulpfile.ts and all registered there tasks, then it will provide them some how to the real
Gulp node module.
My question is how can I add break point to this Gulp
*.ts files and debug them via WebStorm?
Here is what happens if I try to debug a Gulp task written with TypeScript:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\WebStorm 2016.2.3\bin\runnerw.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\nodejs\node.exe" --debug-brk=64720 --expose_debug_as=v8debug E:\XXXXXXXX\node_modules\gulp\bin\gulp.js --color --gulpfile E:\XXXXXXXX\gulpfile.ts build.js.dev
