Debugging the native part of a Webworks extension

Dear All,

is there a way to debug webworks extensions in order to discover runtime errors?

We often (and randomically) get the common loading error "Require Error Can't find

/usr/lib/etc. Library cannot be found" but we cannot manage how to discover more information about that...

Apart from the error itself, I sadly found out that debbuging is really a pain in this scenario..

Any help or tip from BB guys is really appreciated!

thanks a lot

Re: Debugging the native part of a Webworks extension

Hi Marco, debugging Native Extensions is currently quite difficult, due to their hybrid nature.


I typically create a native C++ app first, get it to work, and then make it into a native extension. Have you tried that?
