React native change listening port
I am using react native android and having face issues to deploy the app on an android device. When I run
react-native start, it won't start dev server on port
I have tried a few options mentioned at:
Tried to stop the process running at port number 8081, but no success
My question is that can we change the React Native dev server port from 8081 (which is a default in android however the same we can change in ios from AppDelegate.m file) to something else or any other approach
Your responses will be highly appreciated. Thanks
Not sure if this is documented or not, you can specify the port via a CLI argument, like this:
react-native start --port 9988
I found it in the source code, and it worked on my local machine :)
 This is now documented here: https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/troubleshooting#using-a-port-other-than-8081
