Remote Debugging

DevSpace lets you easily start applications in development mode and connect remote debuggers for your application using the following steps:

  1. Configure DevSpace to use a development Dockerfile that:
    • ships with the appropriate tools for debugging your application
    • starts your application together with the debugger, e.g. setting the ENTRYPOINT of your Dockerfile to node --inspect= index.js would start the Node.js remote debugger on port 9229
  2. Define port-forwarding for the port of your remote debugger (e.g. 9229) within the dev.ports section of your devspace.yaml
  3. Connect your IDE to the remote debugger (see the docs of your IDE for help)
  4. Set breakpoints and debug your application directly inside Kubernetes
