Coming from a traditional javascript development world, i'm stumped by how to debug lightning components. Any javascript error is caught by the salesforce handler in aura and shows up in this dialog, which is devoid of ANY useful information such as stack trace and call graph.

custom salesforce error dialog

Is there a way to disable this so that I can go back to my traditional chrome dev tools where I can use "pause on exception" and have useful error info to debug my lightning components?


you can use the debugger statement to stop processing and open up the browser based tools.

getOpps : function(component) { debugger; // the JS debugger will pause here var action = component.get("c.getOppInfos");

you should read this article ..


That message is the lightning frameworks saying it has an error.. Was not made to be a debug output..
