I am an experienced programmer, but inexperienced in the world of web servers and web programming.
I am running Windows 7.
I would like to be able to have my files on my local drive and debug through WebStorm.
I was able to create a html5 boilerplate project, then replace the files created with my own html and js files.
not well-formed D:/Flash Code/3CISD/code/minigames/Fruit/FruitJS/resources/fruitsettings.json:1
The file is ok, I suspect I get the error because its a local file and its really a security issue.
I can run this code locally by running the node.js http-server.
For that to work I run the http-server at the folder where my index.html file is, then type in localhost:8080 in the browser window.
How can I make WebStorm work with http-server?
I tried fiddling with Run/Debug Configurations but I am not familiar enough with all the buzzwords to make it work.
Your link is broken. What is the correct link?
Do not click on the link -- instead select and copy-paste.
I've got it to run my app through firefox when I do Debug,
however, breakpoints don't work and no variables appear in the debugger window. The Variables window does show the word "Connected" with a blue icon next to it,
I have the jetbrains extension installed for firefox.
Please ensure that remote mappings are set (see run configuration). Or please try WebStorm 6 (http://blog.jetbrains.com/webide/2013/02/webstorm-6-public-preview-build/).
I installed Webstorm 6, no change.
Not exactly sure what you mean by "Please ensure that remote mappings are set"
The only settings I can find are in Run/Debug Configurations.
All that is there is URL to open
