Node debug with junctions/symlinks

I have a thorny situation with debugging node js code when using a folder that is a junction.
When I open/edit a file from a folder which is a junction and set breakpoints in it, the breakpoints will not hit. I need to open the actual file for the breakpoints to hit correctly.
A. c:\temp\project\test.js                                             -- Original file
B. c:\sources\project   <=> c:\temp\project\test.js         -- Junction folder pointing to c:\temp\project   (Note that only c:\source is in an idea project and visible  in webstorm)
If I open test.js in folder A, everything works, if I open it in folder B it doesn't. I have tried creating a library and setting everything as such, to no avail. It's a shame because it makes working with a lot of junction sort of impossible.
For reference, I am on windows 7.

Re: Node debug with junctions/symlinks

Hi there,


If you can reliably reproduce this behaviour then please submit a new Bug ticket directly to the Issue Tracker at http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/WEB


But before that:

  1. What WebStorm version do you use exactly (Help | About) ?
  2. Please try latest v7 EAP build: http://eap.jetbrains.com/webstorm/
