Use react-native-debugger instead of Chrome DevTools

Here's a similar request:

Is there any way in the Debug configuration to not use Chrome DevTools when starting up `react-native-cli`? I want to try react-native-debugger instead because my computer always freezes after reloading the app a few times. Some people say it is related to Chrome DevTools.



Unfortunately it's not currently possible: RNDebugger browser is built on Chrome 58 that doesn't allow multiple debugger connections (this feature is available since Chrome 63, please see changelog). WebStorm debugger can't connect as the only connection is occupied by embedded DevTools.


Please see comments in


It would be nice to be able to use react-native-debugger as well due to the same issues outlined above.
