WebView Android Remote Debugging

Hello guys,

First of all, I use xibo for andorid.

I’d like to be able to debug a javascript embedded in xibo. Before I could do it with Google Chrome Inspector, but now I can’t.

However, if I open an andorid browser instance only, it does appear in the inspector, but not the xibo one.

Reading Google doc, I read that the static method setWebContentsDebuggingEnabled needs to be called, but there my knowledge is already lost.

Can somebody help me?

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards.


Hi @ieciemt,

How do you connect adb to the android device? I’ve had similar problems sometimes if I connected via USB but if I connect adb via network IP address I can always debug webviews in chrome:

adb connect x.x.x.x:5555

Not sure if it’s related to your issue but hope this helps.


Sorry for delay.

I’ve tried to do what you told me, but it hasn’t worked, I mean, the same thing happens, I can’t remotely debug. Has anyone else happened to it?


Hello again,

I’d like to clarify what I’ve said. So, I can connect remotely to ADB, via USB or TCPIP. If I open the android browser, debug it without problems, but when I run the xibo instance, it doesn’t appear to be able to debug.

Any idea?

Many thanks.
