Flipper helps you debug Android and iOS apps running in an emulator/simulator or connected physical development devices. Flipper consists of two parts:
- The desktop app
- The native mobile SDKs for Android and iOS
Once you start Flipper and launch an emulator/simulator or connect a device, you'll start to see the device logs (and any other device-level plugins that work with your device).
To see app specific data, you need to integrate the Flipper SDK into your app. See the relevant section in the sidebar for how to do that.

brew install --cask flipper to let
homebrew manage installation and upgrades (simply run
brew upgrade to upgrade when a new version is released, although it might take a few hours up to a day for the package to be upgraded on

A compatible OpenSSL for Windows can be downloaded here or from Chocolatey with
choco install openssl.
