debug very slow for popular open source project

i've been trying to run this project in web storm

and it does run once the mongo db is set up. however, when trying to debug, it takes a very long time to start (over 20 seconds).

This command line /usr/local/bin/node --debug keystone.js seems to run much faster than the standard debug command

/usr/local/bin/node --debug-brk=63371 --nolazy keystone.js

i would like to run from the ide. anyways, i was hoping you could help.

my debug config is attached.

i stumbled on this thread

which seemed to help

i'm running 10.0.4 on a mac

What is your node.js version? 0.12.* Node versions are known for slowness while debugging ( See for a workaround

Hi, I am running 12.6 and recently compared debugging my project which took 8 seconds to start up, where in atom using an atom node debugger, it took about 3 seconds.
