JavaScript Express Basics (2015) The Request and Response Objects in Express Requests and the request object

Why objects only accessible in the console with node-inspector after a triggered break but not before?

I can similarly access these inside the terminal but was wondering since node-inspector allows access of these in the client console why does it only do so after a break but not priorly?

Thanks in advance

The break will pause the program temporary, so you can inspect what the value of each variables at that specific moment. If you break at a different point you will have a different variable scope.
