kandi X-RAY | pidcat Summary

pidcat is a Python library typically used in Logging applications. pidcat has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. However pidcat build file is not available. You can install using 'pip install pidcat' or download it from GitHub, PyPI.

An update to Jeff Sharkey’s excellent [logcat color script][1] which only shows log entries for processes from a specific application package. During application development you often want to only display log messages coming from your app. Unfortunately, because the process ID changes every time you deploy to the phone it becomes a challenge to grep for the right thing. This script solves that problem by filtering by application package. Supply the target package as the sole argument to the python script and enjoy a more convenient development process.

            What is your dev flow for React Native Android?
            Asked 2020-Jul-04 at 09:49

            For the last few weeks I've been developing an app for Android using React Native, and overall the experience is pretty good, however I feel like I might be missing something. Does anyone have any pointers?

            My flow is

            • Start Android Studio
            • Wait for build/sync
            • Run app on physical device or AVD
            • See the expected red screen
            • Start the Metro server
            • Now the app is running
            • Run pidcat com.myapp to see device logs
            • Make JS changes via VSCode
            • Hit reload in Flipper (no hot-reloading?)
            • Re-navigate to the screen I'm working on

            So far it's all good other than the lack of hot-reloading. However whenever I made a change to some Java code, I need to hit Rebuild in Android Studio, and this takes quite some time usually.

            Is this all normal? Perhaps I'm missing something.

            Thanks in advance

            You don't have to start Android studio.
            If using Flipper, start Flipper first.
            Start metro server in one terminal
            run react-native run-android in another terminal.
            To reload type r in the terminal with metro server.

            Changes to JS side should automatically reflect in the device. ( )
            With react-native you shouldn't be making big changes to the native side of the codes. If reloading doesn't reflect the changes to the native side. Then close the metro server and build again.

            Install pidcat

            Make sure that adb from the [Android SDK][3] is on your PATH. This script will not work unless this is that case. That means, when you type adb and press enter into your terminal something actually happens.
            OS X: Use [Homebrew][2]. brew install pidcat If you need to install the latest development version brew unlink pidcat brew install --HEAD pidcat
            Arch Linux : Install the package called pidcat-git from the [AUR][4].
            Others: Download the and place it on your PATH.
