React App: Starting inspector on localhost:9200 failed: address not available

My React app was working flawlessly until I added context. After adding contexts/StoreContext.js and tweaking App.js, Home.js, NewPost.js, and Profile.js to use the context my project started using 100% CPU and gave the “Starting inspector on localhost:9200 failed: address not available” error. Glitch FAQ mentions this error but wasn’t super helpful. Any insight is appreciated.

Hi! So in StoreContext.js here Glitch :・゚✧ you’re importing uniqueId and initialStore from ‘utils/’ which implies there’s a utils folder in the same folder as StoreContext.js. What you want is the relative path here:

import uniqueId from '../utils/uniqueId.js';
import initialStore from '../utils/initialStore.js';

This should prevent the CRA compiler from tripping up like it is.

Oh, and you had the Debugger tool on, I turned that off and it made the 9200 port error go away for me.

Thanks for you help, the misimport was the culprit. The error message could have been clearer though.

The logs did say there was a problem trying to import those files, but it probably got lost in the rest of the console logs. I’ll let the team know the debugger errors should be clearer, though!
