Our build uses Babel + Webpack to compile our code. We use Karma + Jasmine to run tests. We have NPM scripts that can drive these.
I can build and run all this from the commandline just fine. However, I'm not able to get this working in WebStorm.
I first looked at the directions for Karma through WS, and get an error that look like:
06 06 2016 09:10:31.406:ERROR [config]: Error in config file!
[SyntaxError: Unexpected token import]
SyntaxError: Unexpected token import
at exports.runInThisContext (vm.js:53:16)
at Module._compile (module.js:387:25)
I'm assuming this is because I use ES6. I then tried following the directions to setup a Babel file watcher. Then I set the Karma, I add "Run File Watchers" to the "Before Launch".
Now, when I click the debug button, I see no indication that anything happened at all.
Then, I set-up an NPM configuration that runs our compile, and tried adding that to the "Before Launch". This time, I can clearly see the NPM configuration getting run, and it appears to succeed.
Child html-webpack-plugin for "index.html":

However, I don't see any karma tests getting run, and my breakpoints are definitely not getting hit.
P.S. Sorry, if I posted this twice. I thought I posted it this weekend, but don't see it. . .
