Error launching Google Chrome for React Native Debugging

Logged under “want to remember this for later” dept.:

Thanks to this thread for the tip.

I’ve ran into this error while trying to enable debugging via Chrome using React Native v0.4.3:

/Users/strefethen/github/iPhoneGeo/Pods/React/packager/launchChromeDevTools.applescript:686:689: script error: Expected class name but found property. (-2741)

On my machine it seems the issue stems from a change to launchChromeDevTools.applescript where it refers to “Chrome” when it used to refer to “Google Chrome”. The above error message occurred when selecting “Debug in Chrome” from the React Native Development menu in the simulator. Switching line 13:

tell application "Chrome"


tell application "Google Chrome"
