Re: [wtp-dev] Adherance of NodeJS debugger and JSDT document model

Hi, Mickael
Great news about _javascript_ LSP. 
In terms of  debugger, I believe it does not rely on JSDT internal model at all. Originally custom chromium editor[1] was used for debugging and we implemented some tricks so that JSDT editor would be used by default while debugging process.

Hi all,

As I'm working on TextMate and Language Server, I have the impression that using TestMate grammars and a _javascript_ language server such as the one embedded in VSCode can lead to very good results in term of JS edition. This combo could do most of the work, and the internal JSDT model would still be useful for advanced operations not covered by the VSCode Language Server for JS.
However, I'm wondering how much the Node/JS debuggers in Eclipse IDE do rely on the JSDT internal model for JS files. Do they integrate with the AST/DOM, or do they remain at text level (so they could easily be used together with a totally different editor)?

Thanks in advance for your insights!
