I am attempting to debug a cli node project. Its easier to do npm start than npm install -g . && libgrabber. However, I'd like to run strace on the process. The output of strace -f on the npm start is much more verbose than the call to node itself. Is there a way to invoke strace from the npm start call without all the output from npm itself and just the call to node executing the main script?


Tried Strongloop's Node Inspector yet? Basically it uses Chrome's DevTools to debug Node's JavaScript. Won't help once data leaves Node, but will help you with what I think you're really trying to do; see what is going on 'under the hood'.
