Ripple emulator is the latest debug tool I have tried, and it is so easy to install(a Chrome extension) and it solves three of my major problems for hybrid Apps -
- breaking points debug
- enable cross domains Ajax requests
- Phonegap supported
The mother company of Ripple has been purchased by BlackBerry one year ago, therefore, the BB10 WebWorks SDK uses Ripple as the emulator and it works pretty nice. The BlackBerry HTML5 developer page has detail instructions how to use it
For other devices developer, the Ripple is a Chrome Extension can be downloaded from Chrome Web store. The editor I used is the Aptana Studio 3 which is free too!
The "Package and Launch" function for PlayBook never worked for me, I have to manually enter the line command to upload the bar file to emulator.
Here are some Ripple emulator screenshots for the project I am working on -
