Debugging methods

I typically use node-inspector for debugging my node apps: https://github.com/dannycoates/node-inspector

However, when starting a socketstream server I can't pass in a --debug param like a normally do to enable debugging. Can this be added or are there alternative methods for debugging?

    Hi Jonathan

    I've not used node-inspector myself but I've heard really good things about it - so I'm keen to support if it's an easy change.

    I'll add it to the list of things to look at. If anyone wants to take a stab at this and submit a pull request I'd be happy to merge it in.

    I was able to hack this in pretty easily by adding it to bin/socketstream... obviously not a long term solution, but I can report that node-inspector with '--debug' works fine. For some reason '--debug-brk' behaved the same as '--debug', but I didn't need it enough to press the issue further.

    My idea for a permanent solution is to use child_process::spawn, and add debug flags if signaled by the cli. This could work well with some kind of auto-restart for modified server source or watchdog process, but I can't commit to doing this right now.

    Great! Thanks Harlan.

    I've put it on the list for 0.2.0 which makes use of child_processes and auto-restarts when the server code changes.

    Hi harlanji,

    do you have a fork of the code for this? It would be nice to add it as an option for now.

    Hi all. Support for debugging is coming in the next 0.2 beta later this week.

    SocketStream 0.2 beta 2 now supports the Node debugger. Just type debug before the command you wish to run. E.g.:

    `socketstream debug server`
