IDE for testing

  • Is there a way for you to use some kind of IDE to test the code before pushing it to your raspberry pi? not a big fan of changing code in command line.
    I have tried web storm IDE but it does not work for me.

    I have a local installation of node.js on my windows machine and cloned the MagicMirror repository to it. I develop in Microsoft Visual Studio code without my raspberry. Once I’m confident and everything is running fine I clone my new module to github and the raspberry and check for quirks that might occur

  • I tried it with xampp and node.js (http-server) and got the initial page to be shown (please create a config) but once I create one, the site just shows a black background with no modules. Console says “moduleWrapper is NULL”.

    What’s the trick here? What do I need to run?


    Nevermind, what I was looking for was:

    node serveronly

    I thought that was for production/RasbPi only so I had not tried that.
