Run/Debug Configuration: React Native
In this dialog box, create configurations for running React Native applications.
Getting access to the Run/Debug Configuration: React Native dialog
- Install and enable the Node.js plugin. The plugin is not bundled with CLion, but it can be installed from the JetBrains plugin repository as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
- Download and install Node.js that contains the Node Package Manager(npm).
React Native-specific configuration settings
|Build and launch application|| |
|Platform|| In this area, choose the platform for which the application is intended. Depending on your choice, CLion will run the bundler with |
|Arguments|| In this text box, type the arguments to be passed to React Native, for example, specify the simulator type through the |
|Browser for debugging||In debugging React Native applications, CLion relies on the Chrome runtime, which is used by React Native itself. You can also use DevTools together with CLion. When you initiate a debugging session, CLion starts a new Chrome instance and attaches to it.|
|Bundler port|| In this field, specify the port on which the bundler runs. |
|Node interpreter|| In this field, specify the Node.js interpreter to use. If you choose the |
In most cases, CLion detects the project default interpreter and fills in the field itself. You can also choose another configured local interpreter or click and configure a new one.
|React Native package|| In this field, specify the path to |
|Working directory||specify the working directory of the application. By default, the field shows the project root folder.|
|Environment variables|| In this field, optionally, type the environment variables for executing the |
|Alt+Insert||Click this button to add a new configuration to the list.|
|Alt+Delete||Click this button to remove the selected configuration from the list.|
|Ctrl+D||Click this button to create a copy of the selected configuration.|
|Edit defaults||Click this button to edit the default configuration templates. The defaults are used for newly created configurations.|
|or||Alt+Up or Alt+Down||Use these buttons to move the selected configuration or folder up and down in the list. |
The order of configurations or folders in the list defines the order in which configurations appear in the Run/Debug drop-down list on the main toolbar.
|Move into new folder / Create new folder||Use this button to create a new folder. |
If one or more run/debug configurations are in focus, the selected run/debug configurations are automatically moved to the newly created folder. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Move run/debug configurations to a folder using drag-and-drop, or the buttons.
|Sort configurations||Click this button to sort configurations in alphabetical order.|
|Name||In this text box, specify the name of the current run/debug configuration. This field does not appear for the default run/debug configurations.|
|Defaults||This node in the left-hand pane of the dialog box contains the default run/debug configuration settings. Select the desired configuration to change its default settings in the right-hand pane. The defaults are applied to all newly created run/debug configurations.|
|Share|| Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members. |
The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under
This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
|Single instance only||If this check box is selected, this run/debug configuration cannot be launched more than once. |
Every time a new run/debug configuration is launched, CLion checks the presence of the other instances of the same run/debug configuration, and displays a confirmation dialog box. If you click OK in the confirmation dialog box, the first instance of the runner will be stopped, and the next one will take its place.
This makes sense when the usage of certain resources can cause conflicts, or when launching two run/debug configurations of the same type consumes too much of the CPU and memory resources.
If this check box is not selected, it is possible to launch as many instances of the runner as required. So doing, each runner will start in its own tab of the Run tool window.
|Specify which tasks must be performed before applying the run/debug configuration. The specified tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list. |
