Android developers can debug using Chrome DevTools with Titanium SDK 7.0.x and later. Searching for iOS Debugging? Here you go!
Launch the app/build on the device or a simulator. Note: if using a device, make sure that it is connected by an USB cable before debugging. If you encounter any issues with device discoverability, please ensure that the USB cable is directly connected, not through a USB hub.
Sample via command-line:
appc run -p android --debug-host /127.0.0.1:51388
[WARN] JSDebugger: (main) [13,555] Debugger listening on ws://127.0.0.1:51388/6b8d130f-5a6c-7623-a760-ffc319010448 [WARN] JSDebugger: (main) [1,556] To connect Chrome DevTools, open Chrome to chrome-devtools://devtools/bundled/inspector.html?experiments=true&v8only=true&ws=127.0.0.1:51388/6b8d130f-5a6c-7623-a760-ffc319010448
Refer to Google's Get Started with Remote Debugging Android Devices tutorial for further details on how to debug with Chrome DevTools.
The following is a sample build and debug information to test out your debugging routine on Chrome.
appc new -t titanium -p android -n inspector --id com.axway.debugger.test -u http://www.example.com cd inspector appc run -p android --debug-host /127.0.0.1:51388
Once the app launches, it should stay on the "splash screen" and spit out some logs that it's waiting 60 seconds for the debugger as well as details on how to connect to it. Specifically it should spit out a URL you can open in Google Chrome browser to debug the app. The debugger should "pause" on the very first line of
For testing I find it useful to edit the
You should be able to hit any breakpoint in
app.js even on the first line.
You may find the some features offered by Chrome Devtools may not work or may crash the app (like the heap profiling for instance).
