How does this compare to Stetho?

Stetho is a fantastic tool, but it’s also a really large tool and does require some small configuration on your part.

DebugPort is tiny and completely drop-in.

Additionally, when I was writing DebugPort I wanted to make the primary functionality the ability to execute arbitrary code within my app at runtime. Stetho does this too with their javascript console, but I preferred to use something closer to actual Java: BeanShell.

The database inspection stuff in DebugPort is pretty much the same as in Stetho, except done via the terminal instead of in a Chrome tab. Additionally with DebugPort you have the ability to create/drop databases at runtime.

Ultimately it’s up to you, I think they’re both great tools.. but I’m also biased towards my own creation :)
