Node JS Debugger not hitting breakpoints

For some reason, the debugger isn't hitting my breakpoints. I've made a very simple test application to explain this issue:





A breakpoint is added onto the one and only line in Index.js. I create the following debug configuration:



Running the debug runs the file absolutely fine (I get the "Hello" output). But it doesn't stop at the breakpoint.

Thanks for responding. I guess I'm still trying to get used to the IntelliJ layout after VSCode :-)

strange, it definitely works for me using same setup. What IDEA version do you use? Try adding more console.log() lines with breakpoints - do any of them work? Please also attach a screenshot of your debug console while debugging, so that I xcan see what is logged there

Oh bloody hell. I was pressing the green "Play" button, not the "Debug" button....


I'm an idiot.
