Debuging windows 10 UWP on a desktop?

Hello to all. I know that there is already a topic with the same title, but the answer in it is not the one i am seeking for. Im trying to find out a way to debug UWP 10 apps on windows desktop without involving visual studio. Im in testing stage to see if i will be able to develop apps with ionic and now i want to see how to debug for a different platforms. When i was writing for cordova directly when building windows UWP app i was able to press F12 key and to use explorer debugger, but now this feature is disabled or at least i can not turn it on. Is F12 explorer debugger possible to use with ionic framework and how ?

Thank You! Hope someone can help me!

adding to the config file solve my problem. After that i was able to debug with F12 without visual studio.
