NodeJS: Node-Inspector blank screen

Problem

for no apparent reason Node-Inspector stopped working. Although there was a search bar, no tabs display. When I run my app I get this warning message: warn - websocket connection invalid

Solution

I reinstalled node-inspector: npm install -g node-inspector It updated a couple of the dependencies and everything worked again after that.

Discussion

One other thing that can cause this is if your default browser is not Chrome. Trying to run node-inspector in Firefox gives a mostly white screen.
