Starting Ruby debugger on mac in SketchUp Make 2017

Greetings,

I have a problem making SketchUp 2017 to use debugger library. I downloaded the library directly to the app package:
curl https://github.com/SketchUp/sketchup-ruby-debugger/releases/download/1.1.0.0/SURubyDebugger.dylib -o /Applications/SketchUp\ 2017/SketchUp.app/Contents/Frameworks/SURubyDebugger.dylib

Just in case I even changed permissions to it:
chmod 755 /Applications/SketchUp\ 2017/SketchUp.app/Contents/Frameworks/SURubyDebugger.dylib

The library clearly exists in the required folder:

ls -la /Applications/SketchUp\ 2017/SketchUp.app/Contents/Frameworks/
total 140208

I launch SketchUp as instructed by the Readme for the debugger library:
open -a /Applications/SketchUp\ 2017/SketchUp.app --args -rdebug "ide port=7000"

Still the debugger doesn’t seem to start:
telnet localhost 7000
Trying ::1…
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
Trying 127.0.0.1…
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host

I think I studied key resources like these:


It looks like others just have the debugger started when using appropriate arguments when launching SketchUp. It just doesn’t seem to work on my machine.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
