IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 EAP Adds React Native Debugger
Last week we’ve announced a public preview of IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3. Today we’re publishing a fresh EAP build. Please give it a thorough look, and let us know (through our issue tracker) about any issues you’ll find.
All it takes is a new React Native Run/Debug configuration. Just create one, select the target platform, and make sure that path to the React Native CLI package is correct.
The support assumes that you already have React Native installed and configured for the iOS or Android development. For OS X, we recommend to install Watchman, that worked good for us so far.
Note that currently there’s one limitation: the debugger isn’t compatible with Node 5. Make sure you have upgraded your Node to 6 or 7.
P.S: If you’ve missed the public preview announcement, make sure to read it to learn about other new features in IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3.
Develop with Pleasure!
