SDK for Node.js Updates: Live Sync and Debug Tools

Share this post:

2015 has been a busy year for the IBM SDK for Node.js. We have introduced new features, improved existing ones, and squashed various bugs! Here’s what you need to know:

  • Bluemix Live Sync: Three cool new features to help quickly develop on Bluemix as if you would on the desktop, without redeploying.
    • Desktop Sync: Synchronize any (Windows) desktop tree to a cloud-based project workspace
    • Live Edit: You can make changes to a Node.js application running in Bluemix and test them in your browser right away.
    • Debug: Shell into your environment and debug! You can edit code dynamically, insert breakpoints, step through code, restart the runtime, and more using the Node Inspector debugger.
  • Sync with CF: We’ve pulled in the latest changes from the Cloud Foundry’s Node.js buildpack. This comes with a number of bug-fixes and improvements made by the community.  As we keep in sync with the community version, you can expect to see faster community fixes and features available on Bluemix.
  • Latest IBM Node.js Runtimes: We’ve packaged the latest IBM SDK for Node.js runtime, v1.1.0.13. This means you’ll get a fully supported IBM Node.js runtime when specifying the latest stable Node.js runtime for your application, v0.10.38.

The latest Node.js Buildpack version is v1.15-20150331-2231.
