Could not connect to "http://localhost:4200". Is the server up and running?

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug My SWA project consists of

  • Angular (v12) UI
  • Integrated API (node v14)

About a month ago downloaded v 0.8.2, the following steps VSC created a local DEV I can F5 to launch swa emulator to run and debug both Angular and nodes backend:

  • delete .vscode folder
  • click debug icon
  • select Show all automatic debug configuration
  • select Azure Static Web Apps ...
  • select angular-app: <name of angular app>.
  • everything created.
  • select SWA: Run angular-app from drop-down, F5
  • after a little while, debugger bar changes to “Attach to Node Function” image
  • Terminal tells to use port 4280,
  • a browser pops up itself, everything working like a charm!

After upgraded to v 0.8.3, F5 got image image

To Reproduce Repeating the same steps outlined above

  • after select Azure Static Web Apps ...
  • no more angular-app: <name of angular app> Debug drop-down becomes image

Uninstall v 0.8.3, reinstall v 0.8.2 would not get the same prompt back, and it keeps failing.

I can confirm that it works in this version. When will this be available publicly? Thank you!
