Cannot start OpenDebug because Mono (or a Mono version >= 3.10.0) is required when debugging Node.js applications with free Visual Studio Code on a Mac

This error come up when I tried to use the debugging tools for Node.js program using Visual Studio Code, as outlined in their official tutorial.

The solution was quite easy actually – on a Mac all I had to do was run the following command:

brew install mono
