Debugging React Native application WebView


It’s possible to debug WebView contents in the iOS simulator or on a device using Safari Developer Toolkit.
1) Open Safari browser Preferences

  • “Advanced” tab

2) Start app with React Native WebView in iOS simulator or iOS device

  • Go to Safari Again Develop

3) When debugging on device you must enable Web Inspector in your mobile device settings:

  • Settings

That’s It. Now all your webpage console log will reflect to your safari browser when you will visit with WebView.

Thank you for reading. :)
