Theseus JavaScript debugger for Brackets


Package test results are passing.

This package was submitted prior to moderation and has not been approved. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

Theseus is a new type of JavaScript debugger for Node.js, Chrome, and both simultaneously. It is an extension for the Brackets code editor.

  • Real-time code coverage: Theseus shows the number of times that every function has been called next to its definition. Functions that have never been called are also given a gray background. You can watch the code light up as you interact with the web page.

  • Retroactive inspection: Click a call count to see the values of parameters, return values, and any exceptions that have been thrown from that function. It's like adding console.log without having to save and reload.

  • Asynchronous call tree: If you click multiple call counts, all invocations of those functions are shown in a tree. When callback functions are called, they show up in the tree under the function that created them, regardless of whether they were called immediately or many ticks later.

To install Theseus JavaScript debugger for Brackets, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install brackets.theseus
