This trick will save years of your life. This applescript will make Safari's Web Inspector connect to a Phonegap application running on my iPhone that was started through XCode:
#!/usr/bin/osascript set device_name to "Christian Hellsten iPhone" tell application "Safari" activate tell application "System Events" try click menu item "index.html" of menu device_name of menu item device_name of menu "Utvecklare" of menu bar item "Utvecklare" of menu bar 1 of application process "Safari" end try end tell end tell
Save the file, as e.g. open-web-inspector.applescript, then execute it:
chmod +x open-web-inspector.applescript ./open-web-inspector.applescript
For English version, change "Utvecklare" to "Develop".
- Error -1719 most likely means you need to enable assistive access for iTerm or whatever app you're running the script from.
- Error -10810 means "bad luck" in Applescript. Try restarting the computer.
If all else fails, run the script using the Applescript Editor. Also see, this script.
Tested on OSX Yosemite.
