Inspector is an npm module to add real-time code execution monitoring to your NodeJS application, allowing you to work on continuous code changes. NodeJS: Code Execution Monitoring With Inspector. In this article I’ll use Express framework to build code snippets, but you are free to use Inspector in any Nodejs script.
Have you ever desired to watch your code running, instead of just imagining it?
Hi, I’m Valerio software engineer from Italy and CTO at Inspector.
As product owner I learned on my skin how an application issue can be so hard to fix, creating a negative impact on the users experience, or block new potential customers during on-boarding.
I publish new code changes almost every day and unfortunately it’s quite impossible to anticipate all the problems that could happen after every release. Furthermore users don’t spend their time to report bugs, they just stop using our application, checking for another one that fits their needs better.
In most of the projects I’ve worked on the 50% of the drawbacks for users were caused by simple code mistakes, but more the application grows the more difficult it is to avoid these incidents.
When I started to share my idea behind Inspector I realized that many developers know the problem: they spend a lot of time to investigate strange behaviors inside their application, but they didn’t know that there’s a solution to eliminate this complexity in two minutes, avoiding customer complaints or even the loss of the customer.
Be the first to know if my application is in trouble “before” users stumble onto the problem, drastically reduce the negative impact on their experience, giving me the right foundation to run a successful users acquisition process and to continually increase engagement with less interruptions as possible.
Inspector is an npm module to add real-time code execution monitoring to your NodeJS application, allowing you to work on continuous code changes while catching bugs and bottlenecks at a glance before users do.

It takes less than one minute to get started. Let me show you how it works.
Run the npm command below in your terminal:
npm install @inspector-apm/inspector-nodejs --save
