Live Debug Lambda functions as they execute on AWS
Now you can test and debug your serverless applications live on AWS performing step-through debugging of your Lambda functions using your own local IDE.
SLAppForge Debugger is now available for Java and Node.js.
SLAppForge Debugger for Node.js
SLAppForge Debugger for NodeJS is a toolkit that can be utilized to perform step-through debugging for the Lambda functions executing on live AWS environment, using your own local IDE.
What is SLAppForge Debugger?
SLAppForge Sigma IDE was the first Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to make live debugging of Lambda functions running on AWS a reality. This feature was announced and made publicly available since the 24th of June 2019 for Lambda functions written in NodeJS.
The ability to live debug AWS Lambda functions is a game-changer for developers, as they need not depend on offline log files or traces, and other help provided by observability tools or solutions, which only records information of a Lambda function that has usually completed its execution. Instead, the SLAppForge Debugger can trigger the local IDE of a developer at a set breakpoint, anytime the breakpoint is hit while executing on AWS.
