Debuging Act localy with Chrome DevTools

#1

Hello guys,

in your documentation there are descriptions to run an act locally. On the other hand there are ways to debug node.js code with the chrome DevTools, using --inspect-brk flag.

Is it possible to run acts with using --inspect-brk option, so that I can use a debugger?

According doc Apify-CLI doesen’t support this option. It sounds that there is an way to run acts as a node.js app to use the option, but there is no description how. As a programming dummy I am adicted to debuggers.

Regards,
Wolfgang

Hey @wkeupp,

sorry but using flags like --inspect-brk is not possible now in apify run. I created issue for that in apify-cli repo.

But this should work for you now as workaround before we’ll fix this issue.
APIFY_DEFAULT_KEY_VALUE_STORE_ID=default APIFY_LOCAL_EMULATION_DIR=apify_local node main.js --inspect-brk

Best,
