Edge Inspect + weinre

Using Edge Inspect with a custom local weinre server

The Edge Inspect team provides a weinre server running in the Adobe Creative Cloud that the Edge Inspect Chrome extension uses by default when you choose the remote inspection option. This may not be a viable option for some people for a number of reasons:

  1. You are developing and testing on a wireless network that doesn’t have Internet acces, so you can’t use the Remote Inspection feature.
  2. The pages you’re developing are under NDA or have other IP concerns and cannot be exposed outside of your internal network.
  3. For some unknown reason one or more of your devices just don’t seem to be able to reliably connect to the default weinre server.
  4. You need better performance than you’re able to get using the default weinre server.

With that in mind, we have created some instructions in the Edge Inspect Community Forum to help you get up and running with your own instance of weinre to use with Edge Inspect. Enjoy :)
