Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11282) Chrome inspector connection lost, detached from target - large files
Date Wed, 18 May 2016 10:11:12 GMT


Simon Williams commented on CB-11282:

See (I've included a prebuilt bundle.js
to make life easier).

Install in a Cordova project or serve it up and run it in a browser. Open the console in the
remote debugger and you should see the console messages before immediately being detached.

After some more playing around I can confirm the following:

- works in Chrome for Android
- broken in WebView in (
- broken in WebView in [cordova project] (

So seemingly not Cordova specific, but may be fixable by updating to a newer WebView?

> Hi. I am having issues with using the Chrome remote inspector (chrome://inspect) with
> The WebView appears in the list and selecting to inspect attaches and shows some console
messages, but within half a second it loses the connection, saying "Detached from the target,
reason: Connection lost".
> In the adb logcat it shows the following:
> {code}
> E/chromium(15597): [] Too large read data is pending: capacity=1048576,
max_buffer_size=1048576, read=1048576
> {code}
> This seems to be due to the size of the source file (I am bundling everything into a
single file with browserify). If I run uglify on the bundle (taking it from 2.2Mb to 330K)
then it works fine.
> I should also mention that this is definitely Cordova specific. The Chrome remote inspector
works fine for other WebViews/browsers regardless of size.
> Thanks.
