Stepping through code like in Visual Studio.
In Visual Studio, you can step through code and see the values held by variables that are in use as each line of code executes... This would be useful in WebMatrix too.
Able to debug apps in php , node.js
able to compile project in webmatrix (even by check vwd/vs installation compiler).
better way to show error. in php 500 is not enough to get know about error. it's better if like xdebug way to show error in iisexpress.
Debugging is something we have discussed – let’s see how many votes we can get!
but i think debugging is the main need of every developer. It isn't matter of adding this or that capability... debugging is the basis and webmatrix lack of this.
Adding the ability to debug, you will gain a lot of developers, those who currently are afraid of disarming complexity of visual studio...
Please, don't let us fall in the hands of Joomla :-D
Greetings everyone, we have an update on this request. We're moving this to 'postponed', and releasing your votes back so they may be used on other features. We recognize that debugging is a really useful feature. While this is something we would love to add, this isn't something that's on our near term roadmap. We're not saying this will never happen, but we want to make sure you all can use for votes for something that's more likely to be implemented in the next few releases.

I agree to debug is really important
How does one develop software of any complexity without debugging?

This would be a nice thing to have - we will look into ways to hook up xdebug. For node, you can use node-inspector today with iisnode :-)
Can you make this feature for PHP also. I like if I can use both ASP.NET AND PHP.
