What is NiM? It's "UX sugar" for V8 debugging (Node.js, Deno...) AND MORE. Read more about what I mean here:

This Microsoft Extension streamlines your Node.js development.

NiM provides extended capabilities even compared with the new edge://inspect option. Check out what Paul Irish of the Google Chrome team wrote about NiM...

NiM manages the Chromium DevTools window/tab life-cycle leaving you with more ability to focus on what matters... debugging your code. You no longer need to copy/paste DevTools URL's or continue opening/closing tabs/windows.

NiM automatically detects the URL that is generated when running node (locally or remotely) with --inspect option. NiM provides you with the option of automatically opening and closing Chromium DevTools in a tab or window. Just toggle the Manual/Auto setting and then start a debugging session. DevTools will open either on clicking the "Open DevTools" button or after the specified timeout period. If set to auto close, once you end your debugging session, DevTools will close automatically.
