Injecting remotedev-app monitor into official Remote debugger of React Native. (formerly remote-redux-devtools-on-debugger)

We can use it with:

  • remote-redux-devtools
  • remotedev
  • mobx-remotedev

NOTE We will stop publish the old name remote-redux-devtools-on-debugger on next major version v0.9.


$ npm install --save-dev remotedev-rn-debugger


Add command to your project's package.json:

"scripts": {
  "postinstall": "remotedev-debugger [options]"

It will be run after npm install. (You can run npm run postinstall first)
The ./node_modules/react-native/local-cli/server/util/debugger.html will be replaced.

Options (--option)

Name Description
hostname The remotedev-server hostname. (default: localhost if port is set)
port The remotedev-server port. (default: 8000 if runserver or hostname is set)
runserver Start the remotedev-server with hostname, port option on local. (default: false)
secure Use https protocol for hostname. If you're use runserver or injectserver option, you can provide key, cert, passphrase options for remotedev-server. (default: false)
injectserver Inject remotedev-server with hostname, port option to node_modules/react-native/local-cli/server/server.js, then you can start ReactNative local server and RemoteDev local server with one command ($ npm start). (default: false)
injectdebugger Inject remotedev-app with hostname, port option to node_modules/react-native/local-cli/server/util/debugger.html. (default: true)
macos Use react-native-macos module name instead of react-native. (default: false)
revert Revert all injection. (default: false)
wsengine The web socket engine used in remotedev-server: ws or uws. If not set, remotedev-server default value is used. (default: undefined)

If you not set hostname or port or runserver or injectserver, it will apply default options.

Example - Use custom options in React Native project

You can ignore this guide if you used default options.

Install dev dependencies

$ npm install --save-dev remote-redux-devtools
$ npm install --save-dev remotedev-rn-debugger

Add command

Add command to your project's package.json:

"scripts": {
  "postinstall": "remotedev-debugger --hostname localhost --port 5678 --injectserver"

It will be run after npm install. (You can run npm run postinstall first)
If you debug on real device, you should use LAN IP as a hostname.

Edit configureStore.js

import { Platform } from 'react-native';
import { createStore, applyMiddleware, compose } from 'redux';
import thunk from 'redux-thunk';
import devTools from 'remote-redux-devtools';
import reducer from '../reducers';

export default function configureStore(initialState) {
  const enhancer = compose(
      name: Platform.OS,
      hostname: 'localhost',
      port: 5678
  return createStore(reducer, initialState, enhancer);
