sails debug

Attach the node debugger and lift the sails app; similar to running node --debug app.js. Takes the same options as sails lift. You can then use node-inspector to debug your app as it runs.


$ sails debug

info: Running node-inspector on this app...
info: If you don't know what to do next, type `help`
info: Or check out the docs:

info: ( to exit, type <CTRL>+<C> )

debugger listening on port 5858

To use the standard (command-line) node debugger with sails, you can always just run node debug app.js.
