How to Edit/Debug a Code Node in a Docker Container with VS Code?

I am pretty new to n8n and I run it in in a Docker container.

In the code node is just a small window to edit Javascipt which is not very convenient.

Is there a way to directly edit the code node in the Docker container with Visual Studio Code as well as to connect its debugger to it?

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

Hey @Michael_Uray,

At the moment there is no option for that, We are looking at bringing back the full screen code editor window though which may help in the future.

One thing that could help now though is you can change the width which gives you a bit more space so for me when I am working with the code node I will typically add a bunch of empty lines, make it wider and it is good to go.
