How to start and debug Pyrsia Node using IDE

This tutorial describes how to start and debug Pyrsia using Microsoft Visual Code and IntelliJ IDEA.

Prerequisites

Before continuing please make sure that you have cloned and compiled the Pyrsia sources. For more information please see Developer Environment Setup. In this tutorial PYRSIA_HOME refers to the Pyrsia repository folder.

IntelliJ IDEA Configuration

  • Open the IDE and install Rust plugin. If you use IDEA Ultimate make sure Native Debugging Support plugin is installed.
  • From the main menu select File > Open. Alternatively select Open in the Welcome to IntelliJ IDEA wizard and select the PYRSIA_HOME folder.
  • When prompted to Trust and Open Project 'pyrsia'? select Trust Project.
  • From the project configuration combo box select Edit Configuration; then in the Configuration window, select + or Add New Run Configuration.
  • Select Cargo from the list of supported configurations.
  • Rename the configuration to Run Node.
  • In the Command field past the following:

run --package pyrsia_node -- --pipeline-service-endpoint http://localhost:8080 --host 0.0.0.0 --port 7888 --listen /ip4/0.0.0.0/tcp/44002

  • Add the following vars to the Environment Variables:
DEV_MODE=on;
PYRSIA_ARTIFACT_PATH=/tmp/pyrsia/node;
RUST_LOG=pyrsia=debug,info;
  • Point Working Directory to the PYRSIA_HOME folder.
  • Confirm and save the configuration by pressing the OK button. In the event of Error: No Rust toolchain specified go to the Settings/Preferences, then Languages & Frameworks > Rust, then select Downloads via Rustup.
  • Start the Pyrsia node by selecting Run Node from the configurations list and pressing the Run button next to it.
  • IDEA Ultimate only. Start the debugging by selecting Run Node from the configurations list and pressing Debug button. The debugging related features (e.g. breakpoints) are only available when Native Debugging Support plugin is installed.

Microsoft Visual Code Configuration

  • Open the IDE and install rust-analyzer extension, CodeLLDB extension or C/C++ extension
  • From the main menu select File > Open Folder.
  • When asked Do you trust the authors of the files in this folder? select Yes, I trust the authors....
  • From the main menu select Run > Add Configuration.., then from the Select Debugger combo box select LLDB.
  • When asked, Cargo.toml was detected in this workspace..., select No.
  • In the newly created launch.json file, replace the generated configuration with the following:
{
"version": "0.2.0",
"configurations": [
{
"type": "lldb",
"request": "launch",
"name": "Debug executable 'pyrsia_node'",
"program": "${workspaceRoot}/target/debug/pyrsia_node",
"args": [
"-H", "0.0.0.0",
"-p", "7888",
"-L", "/ip4/0.0.0.0/tcp/44002"
],
"env": {
"DEV_MODE": "on",
"RUST_LOG": "pyrsia=debug,info"
},
"cwd": "${workspaceRoot}"
}
]
}
  • Save the changes and start/debug the Pyrsia node by selecting Run > Start Debugging from the main menu.
