How to debug/inspect your mobile web page on a real mobile device (with or without real device)

When developing web apps for with mobile support, we usually use Device toolbar (Ctrl + Shift + M) on Google Chrome Developer Tools. But, the problem is that sometimes our layout or javascript code work on Device toolbar but not a real device and there is no dev tool on mobile browsers.

Luckily, Chrome Developer Tools provides us a really useful tool to debug our web page on a real android device on our desktop totally like what we do on desktop web pages.

Installation and interacting with Remote debugging are described here.

In case you don’t have an Android device in hand. You could use an Emulator. It works perfectly with me.

I use Genymotion, it’s really fast and stable.

You can use any mobile browser and be able to debug your web pages on that browser.

You can install browsers to the Genymotion Emulator by drag and drop your .apk file to the emulator screen.

Or you can install Google Play Store and get them downloaded just like a normal device.

The processes are described here.

Goodluck!
