Overview

It's very easily to remote debug web applications with luna-next. WebKit provides a powerful tool for this: The WebInspector

How to use the WebInspector

  • flash your target device with a recent version of the webos-ports-dev-image-<modelname> (rather than webos-ports-image-<modelname>)
  • start your app
  • for debugging on a real device you need now to configured a port forwarding through adb on your development machine with (the WebInspector is available on localhost:1122 on the target device
 adb forward tcp:1122 tcp:1122
  • now you can point your favourite web browser to localhost:1122 on your development machine to debug the web application
